My wife's birthday is coming up

Unlike the previous years, I have a pretty good idea what I'm going to buy my wife for her birthday this year.

This is a pretty big milestone because she is going to turn 40 and thinks she is getting old.

I tried to reassure her that she is only getting better by pointing out that Sarah Palin is only 44 years old.

That didn't seem to cheer her up, so I told her that when Palin was 40 years old, she had no idea she would be a heartbeat away from running the country.

Come to think of it, I'm going to encourage my wife to run for city council because if she starts now, she might reach the White House by the time she turns 50.

America, what a country!

I have to admit I'm shedding a tear as I write this because Sarah Palin makes me so proud to be an American.

I'm also wondering if we should enroll our girls in hockey. They are young still, only eight and nine, and they don't seem to be into sports, but maybe they will change their mind once Palin is elected.

I can't think of a better role model.

By the way, my wife doesn't know I have this blog so I'll go ahead and tell you what I'm going to get for her birthday.

A pair of Sarah Palin glasses and a Sarah Palin wig!
