Happy Birthday Chris!

Baby Chris

Today is Chris’ 26th birthday and in honor of this day, I will now tell you 26 secrets about him that you may not know.  I’m sure he’s going to LOVE me spilling his guts for him, but what can I say?  I’ve already spilled my own secrets, so I need new material.

Here we go…

1.  Every night Chris eats a sliced up cucumber in vinegar as we cook dinner.

2.  He has no vision in one of his eyes because of a childhood accident.  I call it his googly eye.

3.  When he walks across a room of strangers, like in a restaurant or something, he whistles as a nervous habit.

4.  He keeps a picture of me from high school next to his bed.

5.  He won’t take sandwiches to work for lunch.  He has leftovers every single day.

6.  He is a sucker for door-to-door sales people.  He’ll listen to them talk for hours.

7.  He thinks K-Swiss tennis shoes are acceptable for any event and he didn’t speak to me for a whole day when I threw his out.

8.  He’s a HUGE pack rat.

9.  He would leave me for Tina Fey.  In a heartbeat.

10.  He knows more about all kinds of music than anyone I’ve ever met.

11.  His favorite movies are The Goonies and Can’t Buy Me Love.

12.  He manages my website (i.e. advertising, design, moderating, etc.) and he bugs me if I don’t post.

13.  He’s scared of bald babies.  I’m convinced this is why the Lord gave Beanie so much hair.

14.  He loves board games.

15.  He never has dessert.

16.  I don’t think he knows how to spell my full name correctly.

17.  He loves chick flicks – especially The Notebook and Mean Girls – but he pretends I force him to watch them.

18.  He can’t stand dirty dishes.

19.  He sings to the Bean when he thinks no one is listening.

20.  He has been teaching our dog, Molly, how to catch a frisbee for 2 years now.

21.  He always orders a footlong sub from Subway so that I can have the last 3 inches.

22.  He thinks he’s tough with the dogs, but he’s a big push over.  And the dogs know it.

23.  He loves his car – even though it has no air conditioning, the windows don’t roll down, it has no radio, and it smells like mothballs.

24.  He knows every word to every Back to the Future movie.  Every.  Single.  Word.

25.  If he could do anything, he’d travel into outer space.

26.  He is loved.
