No Rain.  
I've found that sometimes in relationships, things get hectic and you don't stop to really think about what you have.

Today is my boyfriend's birthday.
Last night, while I was at rehearsal, Mark planned on taking a bus downtown, then out to Lancaster to hang out with Jen and Billy, and possibly go to a party at his friend Ryan's. Then, on the bus, he saw a girl that kind of looked like me. She was with her boyfriend, and they were being kind of lovey-dovey. So he called me, and left a message saying that he was going to spot on Chippewa (where we had our first-first date...as opposed to our second-first date at Kabab and Curry, 7 years later.) Over the course of the next hour he called twice more, to tell me that he was there, and he wanted me to meet him because why would he want to spend the night before his birthday with anyone other than me? He said he didn't need parties and drinking and all that...he'd rather get a cup of coffee with me.

So I met him there...on Chippewa on a Friday night, which is a place I would not choose to go if hell itself were the other option. But for him, ok. I had a tea and a cupcake, and we watched skaters and slutty girls walk by and talked. Then we walked to the car, and I stopped and kissed him in the first spot he kissed me back on our first-first. Then we got food and went home.

Now, his actual birthday isn't going very well...he wanted to see his kids, but it doesn't look like that's happening. But he said last night that he was having a great birthday, so hopefully that's enough.

Anyway, the point of this is that I hope I always recognize those little moments that make all the hectic, crazy stuff worth it.
He's not perfect, but he's perfect for me.
