Hans’ special birthday gift
It’s our friend Hans‘ 40th birthday today, so time for the Madonna Underground co-webmaster to write a story on his fave present…
From the Tribe, Happy Birthday, Hans!
Today is the day, I have reached the age of 40!
Normally birthday’s aren’t that important to me but at the beginning of this year I had a heart attack and it made me put things in a whole new perspective. That is why I had decided to really celebrate my birthday this time.
Of course it is a day of presents but there was one gift that outshone them all and that was Kimmy’s present. I know she was working on something and once she had arranged it all, she needed to give it to me instantly. She called me up and asked me if I was home, unfortunately not as I had an appointment for dinner with someone. But she was like ‘I need to give you this NOW’, OK but can’t it wait until we see each other next week at the airport? NO NOW! was her simple answer. After figuring out a date and time she came by the next day. When she gives me the present the next day and hands me the envelope, I take a picture out of it anf first don’t notice that this is A Madonna and B it is signed. When I look again I see that it actually says ‘For Hans Love Madonna’
I was just speechless and no sound came out of my mouth, just a very strange expression on my face of ‘how in the world did you do this?’, ‘I have my methods’ was Kimmy’s answer. She had expected that I would jump through the roof but that only happened later, when I finally realized what had been given to me, nothing could’ve made me more happier.
