    Best Wife Ever

    Imagine this:

    I wake up to my alarm this morning at 7 AM, and I totally forgot that it was my birthday (dirty 30), and my wife puts this gift box on my chest.

    I look at it, she says there's a card with I love you and other pleasantries....

    Then I look at the shipping info - from Evergreen, CO.

    Could it be? Yes, it is - it's the WBBB double layered that I've been telling her I wanted, and she's been saying I'm crazy for wanting for months. The first thing she said once I saw what it was is, "You can't hang it in the house." haha

    Is it bad that I plan on lying in it at lunch at work today??? There are some trees near my office, but I plan on talking to maintenance to make a place for me to hang inside my office.

    Is there anything specifically I should know about for my first hang in my new rig?

    Anyways..... Happy Birthday to me! Couldn't have done it without all of your HF help...
