I couldn't come up with a name that didn't sound disgustingly saccharine or inappropriately sarcastic (I know, I'm losing my touch) so let's just call it my thingie for this month. It's a blogging resolution for January, as it were.
As some of you may remember, Vicky and I got married towards the end of January 2006. This year we celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary. To mark the occasion, every day I shall post a line here about something that I really like or appreciate about the man. Even when I'm raging mad at him. And I shall not let those posts mock him in any way. No, not even the tiniest bit. Judging by this post, it can evidently be done -- I learn something new every day -- and it shall be done. Since I'm starting a week late, some of the days will carry extra appreciation.
The thing that I like about Vicky on 8 January 2011 is how he lets me 'borrow' his soft jute slippers to wear around the house while wandering around cold and barefoot himself.
The other thing I like about Vicky today is how much he enjoys sharing his good stuff -- his special occasion alcohol, his new toys, his innovations. Not everybody gives that freely.
