and with each year.. they get better and better.

So, Monday was my birthday. I turned 42! So...For the last 15 yrs. I've been married to this guy

who left my present on the counter b/c he had to leave for work.
Within that wrapped packages was this

For those of you who don't know.... THAT, my friends is a spanning wrench... and yes.. it's pretty heavy!

I haven't seen him since Monday night since he works nights and I've been and shall be at the softball fields all week.
Therefore, look for my name, picture and my last seen whereabouts, Thursday night on
Dateline NBC. You'll find hubby probably lying on the floor w/ the wrench nearby along with another gift given some5 yrs ago to me for Xmas, a book called 'How to become a Domestic Goddess' crammed in an [yet to be determined] orifice. No worries he'll still be breathing...

Okay, that definitely beats out MadMad's bike helmet. Way to be romantic, M! Is this another gift (like the Corvette) that is actually a gift for *himself*? Yeah, that's what I thought....

Hey, just a thought, did you shake the box? Maybe there was something sparkly in the bottom and the wrench was a smoke screen to throw you off...
