It’s my wife’s birthday, and so I take the day to reflect, as I often do even when it is not her birthday, how gobsmackingly unlikely it was that a schlub like myself could have ever gotten together with such a gorgeous, smart, fun, good human being such as her. Really, all my friends are still trying to figure that one out. I hope they’ll let me know what they come up with. At the moment, however, I’ll just go with what Cory Doctorow said to me last year, after he met her: “Dude, you are so out of your league.” Oh, I know. I know.
She is a gift and a joy to me, bright and shining, every day of our lives. Today of all days I’d want her, and you, to know that.
