Greg’s birthday was yesterday. We had a nice, lazy afternoon followed by dinner at PF Changs and going to see Spiderman 2. For his present, I gave him the videogame Worms 3D and also got him a Pete Yorn CD. So he was pretty happy with that. But the clincher was my other “surprise” present. Right before 10:00 p.m., I pulled out a brand-new banjo. He was totally NOT expecting it, especially since I had already given him two gifts. It was so rewarding watching his face and eyes light up with surprise and excitement. He is downstairs now learning to play it as I write this (and doing very well I might add).
