i had the best birthday…ever! i had the day off from work and checked my gmail…and i had some nice ‘happy birthdays’ from friends on facebook. that was an extra treat that i hadn’t foreseen. then some emails and calls from family. then, i walked & talked with my since first grade friend and she treated me to lunch. then, i showered and had coffee with another small group of friends and it was so much fun. then, i went to angelo’s for the best barbecued ribs with scott and michelle. and then, this……..left over birthday cake and birthday cupcakes (from the weekend birthday party). and then……..(remind you of ‘dude, where is my car?’) i guess turning 53 isn’t THAT bad…okay it is, but today’s events made it easier to accept.
