My mother-in-law buys me porn!

Since my family was out of town on my actual birthday. We celebrated last night instead. Some good Chinese food at home with the family and in-laws. The coolest thing was that for my birthday, my mother-in-law bought me porn!

Well, it’s about as benign as porn can get since it was a couple issues of Playboy. The cool thing was, they were vintage 1970 issues, and one of them was actually from October! So, I got some vintage Playboys, including the one from my birthday month. HELL YEAH! Did you know? October 1970 marked the first issue in which Playboy did a pictoral on twins! Woo Hoo! My birthday month ROCKS!

Anyway, it’s funny, my mother-in-law has come a long way. Just ten years ago she really thought all of this stuff was horrible. Now one of her favorite restaurants is Hooters. Go figure. I think the fact that both my wife and I see these things as empowering to women, and the fact that both of us would rather see nudity than violence has really turned her around. Boobs = Good, War = Bad.

So yes, porn on my birthday was cool, but it wasn’t quite my favorite present of all time.
