What do you get when you combine Mr. Superman in Afghanland with my birthday?
She was Sergeant Hooker.
Okay, I'll rewind and let you get comfy before I type out those words again. It'll probably make more sense that way.
I am still sick with strep (my HHT makes illness last a lot longer than for 'normal' people) and I am still missing my loverface like crazy but guess what?
I am now officially 23!
I know, big whoop right?
For me, my birthday was pretty good but honestly, I was more excited that it was another milestone down towards Mr. Superman coming home.
I will be back with a recap of my BDAY just as soon as I find my camera cord and recap December.
You know, from last year.
I got a pretty fabulous email from Mr. Superman himself the day before my BDAY (Friday) and thought I'd share a few bits.
"Hey baby girl,
Well I'm glad your flowers arrived safely. By the way, I'm the one that doesn't deserve you. I'm sorry that they weren't exactly a surprise but that's life with a joint bank account. Plus its not like I can currently pick them up on my way home from work. I wanted them to get there tomorrow but they don't deliver on Saturday. Oh well. It's your birthday here anyways so HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are officially my cougar once again. I really hope you start to feel better soon so that you can enjoy your day.
(Insert a big email full of stuff I am not sharing on the blog)
On a final note, I would like to share with you a funny story. Well not so much of a story but you will laugh (hopefully) nonetheless. So I was at the chow hall for midnight chow after I finished my job. I had gotten my food and was going to get a water bottle to drink and passed an Army woman and happened to glance at her name tape. When I read her name I did a double take and turned and had to check it again. At that point it was all I could do to not laugh. Can you guess what her name was? Hooker. She was Sergeant Hooker. Freaking hilarious. I couldn't believe it. Unfortunately she looked like no hooker you would imagine. She was like 5 foot 1 and plump. Really plump. But the name was enough for me. I don't know how you could go through life being named Hooker but I guess she has managed.
(Some more goopy stuff I won't share)
Happy Birthday lover!"
