BIG 34, Happy Birthday Ted

I've known Ted for more than 13 years. We worked at Round Table Pizza together, made our own home movies with friends (like "The Right Side", "Mad Man Jim", Etc.), and watched every movie ever made. He is a member of the 3104 Clan and a good gaming partner. He's been a good friend for a long time. I think one of the greatest things about Ted is his ability to fit in with any group of people. Everyone who meets him like him. My parents liked him when I used to hang out with him all the time, and they still like him today. My wife likes him and says she thinks he is one of the nicest friends I have. She likes to talk about how he will clear his dishes after dinner and even rinse them and put them in the dishwasher. I've introduced Ted to other friends of mine too, who now ask if he can come over when we have parties at my house or theirs. People love Ted. I've been blessed with his friendship and enjoy our long history as friends. Although marriage and having a family take away a lot of the free time I used to spend with Ted, we are still able to pick up right where we left off every time we do hang out. There is not a better friend on the planet. So happy birthday Ted. I hope you have a great one.
