Today I had lunch with a very special person! It was an early birthday lunch. I told him Happy Birthday and he scowled at me!!
The man has never liked birthdays. Personally, I love birthdays! Please, let me be queen for the day! Ok, that doesn’t actually happen . . . but I get cake; so that automatically makes it a good day, right!? 🙂
Anyway, many years back we started renaming his birthday. It became Happy March 9th Day! I even wrote that on his birthday cake the first year. If I remember correctly, it all came about because he was trying to cancel his own birthday! I’m rolling my eyes as I write! Ppplease!! If there is something to celebrate, then we must celebrate!! We changed the name of the celebration and it was instantly less abrasive . . . I suppose.
So tonight I am thankful for an early Happy Birthday . . . um . . excuse me . . . a Happy March 9th birthday lunch with my most favorite Marky in the whole, entire world 🙂
