So on Tuesday he presented me with Wednesday tickets to see Ricky Gervais (creator/star of the of "The Office") at Madison Square Garden, effectively stretching my birthday to two full days.
The 5,000-seat theater was full, and from our seats you could kind of see the features of his face if you squinted a bit. But it didn't really matter. His routine was unsurprisingly like his character, David Brent. And some of his jokes could make you just as uncomfortable-- like when he talks about the Holocaust or teens with cancer.
We had a great time, and my birthday still isn't over. We're going out to eat (where else?) at a peanut butter restaurant Saturday.
