Today Nick is officially 29 years old. He's
not very excited extremely pumped about it. As someone who treats every birthday like a second Christmas (although I admit when Nick pointed out that in two weeks I will be A QUARTER OF A CENTURY OLD it gave me more than a few panicky twinges, and come to think of it, those really haven't subsided) I'm having a hard time accepting his birthday nonchalence. I've been knocking myself out all day trying to get a little birthday excitement out of the guy.
It's also writing prompt time over at Mama Kat's, and in honor of Nick's big day (he'll cringe when he reads this) I'm choosing prompt #1 and describing Nick's best inner quality. Obviously I think he's got a lot of them, but what I like best about Nick is that he can always make me laugh. His sense of humor is the first thing I noticed when I met him, and I distinctly remember that when I started feeling serious about Nick, I felt very sure that I had found someone who would always be able to put a smile on his face. Nick and I have our ups and downs like everyone else, but I know I'm with the right guy when I can be just about ready to kill him and he can STILL coax a laugh out of me.
What about the rest of you? What do you like best about YOUR significant other?
