My husband’s birthday is this week so I was trying to think of the most perfect present ever and of course, I thought, “Well, why don’t I abandon him for 48 hours with four children all under the age of six?”
I think you’ll agree that endless quality time with one’s offspring is the most beautiful of all gifts. I don’t know how he will ever show his gratitude.
And in case that’s not enough, I’m also getting him a card.
I went to that store Papyrus. Doesn’t “papyrus” sound like some kind of extinct animal that you learned about in 5th grade?
But in these parts, it’s a card store.
A super fancy card store where they pile the cards with glitter and sparkles and extra layers of high caliber card stock and then charge you $5.95.
For a CARD.
I peruse the store to find that special card to express my eternal love with just the right balance of wit and romance. Or at least find one that says happy birthday for under four bucks. And then I see something out of the corner of my eye.
Taylor Swift’s greeting card collection.
Now I did not see that coming.
The Jonas Brothers’ greeting card collection? I can totally imagine that.
The New Kids on the Block greeting card collection? They must have given it a go.
But Taylor Swift?
Isn’t she too busy winning Grammy Awards to come up with card slogans? I guess she has people for that. Can you imagine being 20 and having a card slogan assistant? I’d just be happy to be 20 again.
So I take a look. They’re not too bad. Kind of cute. I find one for Rick. And the price? Only $2.79.
Plus, I’m sure it’s guaranteed to make my husband feel like a pop star.
What more could a guy want for his 41st.
