Today is our precious maknae Taemin’s birthday and I would be remiss if I didn’t take some time out of my dumb day to honor him because he has brought a great surplus of joy into my life. (Just watching video compilations of him laughing has been known to greatly improve my mood!) Technically, his birthday is over, but it’s still July 18 here in America so let the celebration continue, I say!
Today, I wore my Taemin socks to work! Carrie thought they were cute. Glenn said I need help.
In case you didn’t know, Taemin is my #2 bias (he’s been doing a great job at filling the void in my heart while G-Dragon is in the military) and he’s in my second favorite Kpop group, SHINee. He was just a baby when they debuted in 2008!
But he somehow grew up to be so dreamy! (That’s literally what Amber called him when I made my group watch a Taemin solo video in honor of his special day, lol, I think she may have been being sarcastic though…..)
I was in a great mood all day! Then I came home and saw that Henry actually went to the store and bought ingredients to bake the Korean cream cake I sent him a recipe for, begging for him to bake it for Taemin’s birthday.
“JUST WHAT I WANT TO DO, WORK ALL DAY, COME HOME AND MAKE YOU DINNER, THEN BAKE A CAKE!” Henry yelled.
So I made my own dinner to help him out! (Cereal and peanut butter toast lol.)
Look at him! Isn’t he the greatest Kpop ahjussi or what!? Oh, the fun we have.
I can’t believe he actually did this for me, I mean, for Taemin. He didn’t even get too surly about it—did I finally break him!?
“Now what?” Henry asked after I blew out the candles. Um, obviously we’re gonna eat the damn thing! It turned out really good, too! Henry is the best housewife, you guys. I mean, what CAN’T he do.
(I’ll answer so you don’t have to: PROPOSE.)
Henry took some pieces over for Blake and Haley. “Did you tell him it’s for Taemin’s birthday?” I asked hungrily.
“Yes, Erin,” he sighed.
“Yeah but, did you specifically say Taemin, or just ‘some Korean guy’?” I pressed on.
“I said Taemin,” Henry said through the web of slumber over his face.
“Well did Blake even wish him a happy birthday?!” I cried, and Henry was like, “*no comment*”
6v6 is the emoticon that represents Taemin; all the members of SHINee have one.
Idol worship is so weird, I know, but it sure does make life fun. It’s nice to have things to celebrate. What a fun Wednesday night!
