I wanted to tell you about the great birthday mystery.
My last birthday was a big one (50), and Claudia managed to surprise me in a big way. She told me only that I shouldn’t plan anything on a certain week in June, and that was about it. Then we incidentally had a trip to Toronto that was supposed to be right before the big week. We’d been wanting to do it for a while so that I could meet up with a colleague of mine, an architect that I had worked with on a big project together – she had then been transferred from Houston to Toronto, and the three of us had been wanting to meet up.
So the plan was, Toronto for two days, Claudia had a couple business meetings to take care of, then the three of us would meet in Toronto for lunch, then fly back, and go “somewhere” the following week.
