[my phone rings]
me: hi, sweetie!
Rob: i was just calling because today's a very special day...i wanted to wish you a happy P.G. Wodehouse's birthday!1
me: thank you! i was just about to call you and wish you a happy Arizona Statehood Day!
[conversation goes on as "normal"...or, well, at least as "normal" as a conversation between Rob and i can go.]
...and that was the nerdy, sarcastic extent to which we observed any holiday on saturday. this is yet another reason why Rob is awesome. ♥
1 well, it's actually his death-day, not his birthday. but, i didn't know it at the time.
