My girlfriend is better than yours because . . .
. . . for my birthday last week she ordered me something I’ve wanted literally since I was six years old. And yesterday it arrived. And now I am happy.
So very, very happy. Motherfucker, that girl got me Cosmos, all 13 episodes on DVD. We watched the first two last night (well, I did — Ashley fell asleep like ten seconds into the first episode, bless her heart), and it’s just as awe-inspiring as it was when I first saw it, when I was a little kid still wondering if everyone else had a penis or if it was just me. Cosmos was no help on that question, but it made me wonder about the universe as a child, and now as an adult I’m still wondering. How did I luck out and get such an awesome girl, who is smart and hilarious — and oh yes, fellas, easy on the eyes — and is willing not only to tolerate my childish nerdy interests, but to enable them? She’s a keeper.
