Guys Treat Birthdays Differently

This upcoming weekend is going to be a busy one.

Not only is Jake, our son, coming to visit us for the first time, but we also will be hosting our friends Daniel and Dana who will be in town to run the St. Jude Half Marathon.

Last night while Tammy and I were discussing everything we would be doing over the weekend when she thought about something and was shocked I didn’t know the answer.

Tammy: Crap, isn’t Daniel’s birthday coming up?
Me: I dunno.
Tammy: How do you NOT know?
Me: Because guys don’t care about that stuff, but I think you are right it was around the time of the marathon that year.
Me: (Looking it up on Facebook) It’s Dec. 5. What day is that?
Tammy: It’s a Thursday.
Me: Perfect. They get here on Friday, so we don’t have to worry about anything then.

And that’s how guys celebrate other guys’ birthdays.

In honor of Daniel’s upcoming birthday, I’ll post pictures of us here.
