My wife hates the clap

Merrin & I went to Papasito’s tonight for Tex-Mex. It was awesome, just like it always is. But, something happened that made Merrin reiterate one of her most closely held beliefs:

My wife hates clappy birthday songs in public.

You know what I’m talking about: funny hat, cake (or something) with a candle, everyone clapping and singing. She hates it. Period. End of story. Years ago she threatened to break up with me if she ever got a clappy birthday song. Tonight, she threatened to divorce me when I said jokingly, “I know someone else who has a birthday!” Apparently, it wasn’t as funny to her.
