I had an emotional night last month and I’m finally ready to talk about. My favorite television show, The Office, aired its final episode. It was sad. It hurt. I may have even shed a tear when one of the main characters, Michael Scott, made a surprise appearance at the very end of the show. It’s just a television show, but it’s funny how connected you became to the characters. They were part of you in a way. It’s especially weird when you consider what has happened in your life between the time span of the first episode and where it is now. A lot has changed in nine years in my life and the world.
My wife and I have a tradition called Birthday Weekend. No matter what day of the week your birthday falls on, you get to celebrate your birthday the subsequent weekend. I’m not sure exactly when this tradition started, but we’ve stuck to it for several years now. Recently it was my wife’s birthday and we pronounced the biannual arrival of birthday weekend in our house. We were both excited to celebrate not just one day, but all weekend. I’ve learned that parties can always go a little longer in my opinion.
