I met the Dr. Ben Black on his 17th birthday. He wore a LL bean farm coat that was green with a brown courdaroy collar. His hair parted to the side in a haircut I like to call "the comb over." This makes him irrationally angry. I thought he was pretty fabulous and easily embarrassed. I had no shame and am always in for a laugh. Yes, this was during the overall phase. I believe the pair that weekend were kacki and paired with a plaid men's button up shirt from the gap. Hawwwwwwwwwwwwwt.
I had to go out of town on Ben's bday this year, but before that we had ourselves a little morning time celebration complete with candles, donuts, and a happy bday sign. I also left some cake balls for G and B to have that evening. One G said, "he'd just hold" and refused to give it back. I hear they were delicious.
So here's one for your Benjamin Andrew. Benihana. HusBen. Daddy.
