Sad Birthday

Today is Angry Guy’s birthday. Now let me just start by saying that Angry Guy and I aren’t into big expensive over done celebrations or gifts for that matter. Angry Guy always seems to make any occasion centered around me very special even without all the pomp and circumstance. He does silly things like buys me my favorite candy from when I was a kid and then adds a nice gift card. If there is something specific that he know I want he always makes sure to buy it. But Kitty for the most part is not too materialistic. Oh I enjoy my techy toys but I am just as happy with a library book.
When it comes to reciprocating Kitty is not nearly as creative. Keep in mind that a blow job to Angry Guy is not a welcome gift. Don’t get me started. Anyway, I asked Angry Guy a few weeks ago what he wanted for his birthday and he said “I want to go out to a nice dinner with you…just you.” The kids naturally were insulted at first but I have to say that I was touched.

So Angry Guy and I are in fact going out on a date tonight which is great. I also picked up a gift card and a sappy birthday card which Angry Guy loved.

The thing that made Angry Guy’s birthday so sad is that just before leaving for work today I made a comment about his birthday and Angry Guy said “I’ve already outlived my father and my grandfather.”

Remembering that they both died very young I looked at Angry Guy and thought to myself how much I would miss him if I lost him now…now that I have finally found him again.

What a sweet post. I can empathise with Angry Guy. I too have outlived my mum and dad who were also young when they died. No doubt AG reflects on this a lot. I know I do. xxxxxxx

Well, Kitty, do you think there is hope of rekindling what you want with Angry Guy? I wish you could send him to our counselor ... I know that is the obstacle. Men are loathe to admit weakness. Maybe you can really find him again.
