The Daily EO: November 19th, 2012

One year ago Emile and I were in Grenada to celebrate his 40th birthday.  He didn’t know about the trip – I managed to pay for it with my tips.  6 good friends came along and we had a great time staying in our rented villa and soaking up the sun.  Emile didn’t really know what was going on until we pulled into the airport and got in line for at Caribbean Airlines. Even then, he couldn’t quite absorb that we were on this vacation and that I had pulled the whole thing off with him being completely unaware of anything.

I loved organizing the trip for us, but I fell into a habit of watching everything I said around him.  It got to be second nature to hesitate before I spoke, to keep my thoughts to myself and lie to Emile.  It took me a bit of time to get back to normal where I share almost all of my thoughts with him freely again.  The simple pleasure of speaking to one who gets me and doesn’t ever judge.

We aren’t doing anything spectacular for his birthday this year, but we are full up on spectacular right now.   But yet. . .
