40 20 wishes for his birthday

Today is Mike's birthday. His 40th birthday to be exact. I gave him his gift over the weekend. I wished him a happy day on Facebook. We're going out to dinner tonight. But I still felt compelled to offer my celebratory salutations here on the blog, too. So, I've decided to list 40 wishes for my husband's birthday:
  1. I wish he would replace the toilet paper on the roll.
  2. I wish he would scrub the dishes before he puts them in the dishwasher.
  3. I wish he would permanently forget the password to his eBay bidder account.
Oh wait...that's not quite what I was going for.  I'll finish that list for MY birthday. Let me try this again.

To my huzzzband:
  1. I wish you a big bubble in your pizza crust, just like you like it.
  2. I wish you sunglasses that don't have finger smudges on the lenses.
  3. I wish you 3 stars on every board of Angry Birds. (I know you've already got that, but this will cover you for future releases.)
  4. I wish you moments in every day that release your big laughter.
  5. I wish you Diet Mountain Dew available in every restaurant you go to.
  6. I wish you a dedicated Star Wars channel on cable TV.
  7. I wish that someday you will get to ride in the General Lee.
  8. I wish you good health.
  9. I wish you summers with air conditioning.
  10. I wish you winters with heat.
  11. I wish you a trip to see the last Space Shuttle launch.
  12. I wish you a trip to see a Cubs game at night. (Oh yeah, wish granted.)
  13. I wish you Geno's East Pizza.  
  14. I wish you uninterrupted sleep for at least one night. 
  15. I wish you the return of the loyalty you show others. 
  16. I wish you the forgiveness you so easily give.
  17. I wish you success in your profession.
  18. I wish you peace in your heart.
  19. I wish you happy memories of your mom.
  20. I wish you serenity.
Sorry honey. 40 is a very big number and I'm running out of things to wish for you, unless I go back to my original line of thinking. Let me just say:

I wish you a very happy "Bee"-day!

Reading this list while listening to I won't let go is a recipe for tears.
