How’s not playing laser tag? Because playing laser tag is awesome! -Barney, How I Met Your Mother
Match’s birthday is this Thursday and I still have no idea what to get him. Yes, I bought him the new Playstation3 but only because ours died. I still would like to get him something he can open on his birthday. Nothing too expensive, since we’re trying to save and since the PS3 was spendy, but just a little token of appreciation for all he’s done and been through this year. I am so proud of him for how well he has been handling the stress of academy.
I could get him something random, like a silver eagle coin that will eventually be worth a lot of money, but he’s not much of a collector. He’s mentioned wanting a punching bag, but that’s a little too expensive right now. Maybe I will just get him a couple of scratchers and a 6 pack of his favorite beer. He’s really tough to buy for because he’s a bit of a minimalist.
This Saturday we’re getting together with a bunch of the recruits for laser tag and drinks. It’s going to be legendary! 🙂 I’m also planning on making him his favorite meal, Green Chili, from scratch and following his father’s recipe. Eek! I am also going to attempt to bake my first cheesecake from scratch. These will both be a labor of love and we will see how they turn out. Wish me luck! And if you have any suggestions for a small gift that I could get Match, I’d love to hear it!
