He's not old. He's 37.

One of my first dates with Doug 17 years ago took place at his home. He said we were going to watch a movie. He handed me a book and said "follow along". The book was the script for Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail. I knew nothing of Monty Python. I loved anything to do with King Arthur, Lancelot, the Knights of the Round Table however. If you know nothing of Monty Python and this movie, watch this and enjoy the absolute ridiculousness that is some of this movie. :

Anyway, there is one line when King Arthur is visiting the countryside recruiting knights for the Round Table and he meets Dennis. Arthur calls him an "old woman" and after getting his gender straightened out, Dennis tells Arthur "I'm not old, I'm 37". Doug and I find that line absolutely hysterical. And today is applies even more, because my husband is 37. So stop by and wish him a happy birthday. He reads the blog and the comments. And hopefully he doesn't mind that I'm throwing this out there.

So to you my husband. You're not old. You're 37. And you're the best. I love you so much!

Happy Birthday to Doug!!

And Jay-Z also says that "30's the new 20" so in rap years he's only 27. (and if Jay-Z says it, then it must be true)
