happy birthday!

I want to wish a happy birthday to my official blog brother. He is the only other person I know whose mind warps off in strange directions the way MINE does. He is the master of a very impressive, very esoteric vocabulary, too.

He started commenting on my blog a couple of years ago, and I fell in love with him right away. Of course, at the time, I thought he was a WOMAN, because of his name. I was damned disappointed to discover that he was male, but I still liked his writing. (I pictured someone named "Kim Crawford" as a leggy blonde with perky nipples and bright red toenails. I wasn't far off-base with that assessment, but I really expected Kim to be female.)

I met him in person for the first time at the Exchange Tavern on River Street in Savannah a while back. We quaffed a few adult beverages, ate a nice meal and staggered out of the place a few hours later. I think I took a taxi home that day. (The Exchange is my favorite place to meet bloggers I've never seen before. It's a quiet place, easy to find, with good food and the best Bloody Marys on the planet.)

He is not much different in person than he is on his blog. He is as crazy as a shithouse rat. I grew up just a couple of doors down from his darling bride, and I met her in her current grown-up version at the meet in Helen. Just DAMN! She surely blossomed when she matured. She's VERY pretty and has a rack that... never mind. I'm digressing again.

Anyway, Kim and I have stayed in touch for quite a while now and I am proud to call him my friend. He's turning into an old fart now, and this latest birthday is just one more brick in the wall. I think he sits up and watches closely when commercials for Viagra or Cialis play on television. He rides his bike just for the sensation he feels in his ass, although he calls it exercise.

Go wish Kim a happy birthday.
