Twenty Seven

Today is Toby’s birthday. He is 27 years old. He’s just a little dude. Right now he is out trying to find us something to consume other than instant coffee. (I really should have gone with him, but I’m tired and I’m doing our laundry as it’s finally not raining here on the big apple.)

If you are an unfortunate member of the mihow cell phone club, you were probably phoned at some obscene hour last night and asked to stop whatever it is you were doing and celebrate Toby’s birthday. We may have left you messages. We may have even spoken to you. I’m not sure. Because I was playing Galaga when this idea was conceived.

Anyway, it’s Toby’s birthday. And I love him. I adore him, quite honestly. He pretty much rescued me three years ago. And, for that, I literally owe him my life.

Happy Birthday, my sweet and lovely Toby Joe.

  5. Beaner is Toby’s nickname. I have no idea why.
    Nifkin, well, I haven’t put all my numbers into the new phone yet. (By “new” i mean six months old, of course.) Sadly, I don’t have your number in my phone. So you should call me. And then I’ll have you number in my phone. Yes. Do that. And I want to say hello to your dog.

  6. I just looked up “beaner” on dictionary.com, and it is a baseball deliberately thrown at the batter’s head. That said, I could swear I’ve heard “bean” used as a euphemism for a large cranium. Toby is really smart, so it’s kind of fitting.

  8. Toby also has a very large head. Then again, my head is unbelievably small. So maybe it’s only a relatively large head. But I don’t call him beaner because of his large head. However, it did begin one day when I used to peeench his tiny head (Kids in the Hall style) and I guess it just stuck.

  9. Toby is a Vegan. They eat a lot of beans. We know the result of eating a lot of beans. Beaner is better than Pull-My-FingerJoe.

    Happy Birthday. Your card would have been on time, however, I had to look up Butt Paste on Google to give Momhow the correct spelling for your name – not to mention the confusion the poor old woman had trying to figure out what state you two lived in.

  10. The cake looks yummy! Wish we could be there to help you eat lots of sugary vegan pieces of birthday cake. Maybe for New Years…

  12. I had a gin and tonic in my possession when I was a victim of the drunk dialing, and I raised my glass in honor of Mr. Toby’s bday. Happy birthday, yo.
