Happy Birthday to you. I hope you had a nice time last night. It was a pleasure to celebrate the evening with you! Continue celebrating through the weekend...through the month even. This is big stuff!

I have the same kind of convoluted mind.
and it seems that the b'days that have 'gotten to me' are those in the middle of the decades - the 35 and 45, not the big 0's.

Hope you had just the kind of day you wanted. Have a bright and happy year. Filled with good things.


Happy Birthday.

I don't find those musings strange at all. Chinese babies are born a year old (gestation counts). When I was 16, my mom let me go to Germany and then take a train to Sweden all on my own. When I got home and thanked her for placing so much trust in a 16 year old, she just stared at me.

"You are 16? I thought you were 18 and I couldn't stop you! I knew you were 17 and remembered that I needed to adjust one year. I should have subtracted instead of adding a year."

Too late, mom. I already went. ;-)
