So, it’s Captain Thoughtful’s birthday today and I really love that guy a whole bunch so I’m dedicating this post to him. Because it’s about him. More specifically, it’s about the gifts I was going to get him but didn’t and that he should probably thank me for not doing.
1. A kangaroo. Captain Thoughtful loves kangaroos but I heard they will totally kick your chest in and also one of his best friends is going to Australia for 5 months and he’s going to miss him so I didn’t want to rub it in by buying a kangaroo for his birthday. Because I’m thoughtful like that. And I couldn’t find a kangaroo.
2. Skydiving. Sure, he really wants to skydive but I figured it’s not worth listening to me worry about him non-stop for weeks on end and telling him about all the stories I heard about (and made up) about people dying horrible skydiving deaths because they accidentally flew into airplanes or got smacked in the face by birds who were angry that people were trying to invade their sky territory.
3. A bear hug. Like, an actual hug from a bear. It just seems like you would feel so safe and secure and loved in a bear’s arms. However, party-poopers convinced me otherwise.
You’re welcome Captain Thoughtful. Happy birthday!!! And also, I love your guts!!!
