    When she agreed to divorce me was hard to top, though

    Yes, 2004 was better than my son's birth, but to be fair, I didn't have to deal with decades of not being a parent, along with several stillbirths along the way, before I became a father.

    I do get why folks would dsay their wedding day beats 2004...just not me. My wedding day was a terrifically fun event and it made me incredibly happy but I hadn't waited 25+ years for it to happen.

    I do NOTget why folks say the birth of their child was such a fantastic day. Actually having said child as a part of your family, playing with them, teaching them, enjoying seeing and being a part of their growth as humans absolutely beats 2004 but the one day event of birth with all of its messiness, lack of sleep, fear of complications, etc? How the hell does that beat Otober 27, 2004?

    The day my divorce went final was hard to top. I think if your child being born isn't bigger than 2004 you may have been doing it wrong. That being said, I happened to be in NYC on business when they beat STL, and it was really just a profound sense that the world was finally right as rain. Went down to the hotel bar and had a double Glenmorangie and happily sipped away all the years of frustration. I'll never forget the girl who served me that night -- she couldn't figure out why I was so happy to be sitting in an empty hotel bar staring at ESPN with this dumb look on my face.

    My thought was somewhat tongue in cheek. Emphasis on somewhat.

    Nowadays, the husband gets a few weeks off (depending on where he works I guess) when a new one arrives. For my kids, went out and got a bottle of whiskey to celebrate, and the cigars, and went in to work the very next day to hand them out (the cigars).

    I thought it was, but I wasn't 100% positive. I wondered for years and didn't bother to ask.

    I've updated it. Thanks.
