today is Tyrone's birthday

someone had this to say after meeting him:

"he was a king wherever he went. He walked like one, he behaved like one, and he was the most masculine man that I have ever met in my life."

okay maybe that was actually about clark gable, but the quote fits.

everyone loves tyrone.

the other day I was talking to @adriantrimble about him and we concluded that tyrone is aloof, but in a good way. like he's obviously got way more important shit to be dealing with than to give anyone his full attention

but when he does you feel like the center of the universe.

which is how he makes me feel all the time. auw.

and even when we know we should hate him for doing stupid things
like being obsessed with being a captain
or being obnoxious
or doing bird calls in restaurants over breakfast
or laughing like burt reynolds
or wearing awful costumes
or being a stick in the mud about rental skates
or planning schemes with chris komus

we don't

we just smile n laugh n maybe cover our mouths
(or our eyes)
(or our ears)

and love him a little more for it.

happy birthday, you ridiculous man.

I love you to the moon and back.
