O Henry, 2005

I have to share one more goofy story.

Riza and I share an Amazon account. I forget why. I have my own but we both ended up using hers. We'll leave things in the shopping cart for another time or to reach the minimum for free shipping.

I went to order something a couple of weeks ago and noticed an iPod Shuffle in the cart. Riza has a thing for miniature electronics, so I purchased it for her.

I was going to surprise her with it, but an opportunity came up to tease her, so I said "You brat, you were going to buy yourself an iPod Shuffle! I saw it in the Amazon cart!"

It turns out that she had actually picked it out as a Birthday present for me.

It just came today. Thanks sweetness -- I love it!


UPDATE: Thanks for all the cards, calls, comments, and kind words -- I had a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday, John. We just sent you an e-card this morning. Riza, you are clearly an intuitive and sneaky shopper. Mario has been having technical problems with his i-pod, so when John gets up to speed on i-pod-ology, perhaps Mario can be his Padowan Apprentice. The techno force is strong with you! Happy Birthday. Wishing you both a year filled with love, laughter, good health and terrific adventures. Barb
