The Girl Who Walked Me Out of My 45th Year


She went and bought me a present today for my birthday tomorrow while I was at work. She left it wrapped on the dining room table, which she proudly showed me when I came home. 

“Do you want to open it now?” 

”No, let’s wait till tomorrow.” 

”Can I tell you what it is?” 




”Can I show you a picture? I have one on my phone.” 

“No. But you are wonderful. Tomorrow morning will be awesome.”
