Our brother-in-law and mrguy have birthdays one week apart. Now that we live half the country apart it's hard to celebrate, get gifts together on time, etc. Yesterday, we received a movie of their baby cat playing with a ribbon on which "Happy Birthday Uncle MrGuy" was written. And this message, written by my sister and anonymized for the blog. mrguy loved it so much he read it over and laughed and laughed:
"We have devised a perfect system for the giving of birthday presents between Mr. Guy and The Little Man Who Lives in My House, which goes as follows: Today we went to Zipps and bought a beautiful bottle of Scotch, as though to send it to you for your birthday. We ask that you also go pick a bottle out as though to send it to TLGWLIMH for HIS birthday. But haha, this is genius! We keep the scotch. You keep the scotch. No trip to the post office & no postage costs! No possibility of breakage in the mail! What, we ask you, is not to like about this?"
