Thursday, November 24, 2005On Advancing Age and Pumpkin Pie
Happy Birthday to my favorite sweetie-buddy Smithers, who today reaches the amusingly elderly age of 37. As his birthday regularly falls on Thanksgiving, I have become accustomed to celebrating it with pumpkin pie, which is doubly ironic since as a New Zealander, Thanksgiving means nothing to him, and what's more, he hates pumpkin, including in pie form. Nonetheless, today I will be eating mine in honor of him.
I will, of course, continue to adore Smithers forever no matter how decrepit he becomes.
Also, happy birthday to Diana, whose birthday comes a few days from now. She's pretty old too, but don't tell her I said so. (Fortunately, she never reads this blog, so I can probably get away with it.) I will miss her presence in Memphis very much.
Birthday hugs for everybody. |
