half birthdays

About 6 months ago, I bought a new planner.

Now I don't know about you, but buying a planner is an exciting time for me.

I get to enter all kinds of important dates and [temporarily] feel like my life is perfectly organized.

One of those important dates was December 12, 2011.

Was it an anniversary?  No.
Was it a holiday?  No.
Was it the last day of finals?  No.  [Well, uh...yes.  But I didn't know that at the time.]
Was it a birthday?  No.
Was it a half birthday?  Yes.

Tim's half birthday, to be more specific.

I'd never celebrated half birthdays before, but I thought it might be fun.

So I secretly planned for months that I would do something for Tim's half birthday.

In the end, it was just something small, but it was kinda fun.

He came home to see this:


And this:

I just got him some Reese's Pieces, but from the ecstatic way he reacted, you'd think I'd gotten him a flatscreen HD TV or something.

Moral of the story?  Nobody sells anything that says "Happy Half Birthday."  I might have to start my own line of products.

[Wait, what?  That's not a very good moral?  Ok, let's try again.]

Moral of the story?  Buy a planner.  They'll make you creative in ways you've never dreamed.
