Brenda is my best friend of over 25 years, and 20 years ago her son was born. I’ve known Jake his whole life. I remember being the person to whom the nurse said,”Ma’am, you can’t go in there”, while walking through the doors to see Brenda and Jake the night he was born by emergency C-section. I had to make sure they were okay. Jake was practically a toddler when he was born, at 24″ long.
Jake was a good kid, and now as he leaves his teen years, I am pleased to report that he is a good man. He is pursuing his passion, which I think is awesome! Brenda is out of town for Jake’s birthday, so she enlisted me for a covert operation of delivering balloons to his car for his birthday. Xanny, my dog, was my partner in crime, and after picking up some balloons we took them to Jake’s car, where we left the birthday surprise.
Happy Birthday, Jake!
