The birthday card I bought for my wife in 2010 sat on my desk as I tried to think of a way to express how happy I was to be with her. After hours of thinking it over the card was still blank so I grabbed a pen and tried to explain that the words I had to describe my feelings felt inadequate somehow. The problem was, those were the words I used. I actually wrote:
I feel so inadequate
I stopped, because that’s a terrible thing to write in a birthday card even if I was trying to make a point about my words failing me (which they really did in this case). I tried to cross out the last word but there was no mistaking what I had written, it simply now looked like this:
I feel so

Some important reading material.
By the time New Year’s Eve rolled around in 2006 I had been asking Nina to marry me for about four weeks. Since we had only been dating for a total of five weeks she had been smart enough to say no. Then the party started…
After being surrounded by friends and drinks for a few hours Nina yelled across the party to me and asked me if I still wanted to get married. I yelled back that I did and she said: “Fine, let’s get married.” So we were engaged but we had a party to finish and I had a bottle of whiskey to finish. We then continued the party, although I don’t remember anything about what happened after midnight.
I woke up the next thing morning acutely aware that I had done something very important before passing out. I retraced my steps from the previous night: Party starts, drinks, drinks, drinks and then Nina agreed that we should get married. That seemed about right; it was a good way the start the year.
Tonight we’ll be celebrating New Year’s Eve for the 7th time. Since I no longer drink it’s unlikely we’ll do anything as dramatic as we did the first time we celebrated the new year together but you never know.

I have no idea if it’ll air online. No one tells me anything.
TONIGHT, you can watch my wife talk about Dr. Who on TV.
