It's that special time of year again...my second most dreaded time of year aside from 'Shocktoberfest' which is John's 'Birthday Week'. Yes, I have a husband who has a 'birthday week'. I think I've complained about this before in previous posts, but just in case anyone has forgotten, John's 'birthday week' is a time honored tradition of torture for me. Something happens to this 42 year old man and he reverts back to being a little boy. There's cake, there's pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, milkshakes and soft serve ice cream. Every night it's a different fast food that I have to treat him to and listen as he plans his next meal. It's so strange. Fortunately he loves Indian food, so at least we get to upgrade tonight to a nice restaurant.
In some ways I shouldn't complain as he doesn't demand gifts- although, he doesn't shy away from them either. This year I decided to give him a 'bonus gift' in exchange for a non-fast food evening (didn't work). I designed a 'Monster Lobster' poster. This needs explaining doesn't it? While most couples discuss their plans for the day over breakfast, John and I has a weirdo tradition of making up plots for fake movies. Monster Lobster is the result of this. Basically it's about a small New England town that is terrorized by these giant lobster monsters. True, it's a total cliche but there are dance numbers in it- even the giant lobsters get down. There's a lot of 'science' and a hero 'Brave Skipper Bo' who saves the day. Fascinating.
Anyway, he appears to quite like his gift (I framed it and everything) but now it appears that this will become part of the tradition of 'Birthday Week'. A new movie poster every year. Sheesh, what have I done?
