Today is my birthday.
No, I won’t be having cake (doctor’s orders).
But I will be enjoying a cup of hot water with ground ginger in it.
Do I know how to party or what?
Just a little trivia:
The number one song on the day I was born was “I Will Follow Him” by Little Peggy March.
Okay, yeah. I’m old.
When I was in junior high, it thrilled me to no end when I learned that I share a birthday with Peter Frampton.
“Frampton Comes Alive” was a wildly popular album back then. And I could spend hours staring at Peter Frampton’s gorgeous mane of hair. He was so dreamy.
So when I found out his birthday is also April 22nd, I was convinced it meant something significant – like we were destined to be together.
Oddly enough, I did not have the same reaction when I discovered that I also share a birthday with Vladimir Lenin.
Say, did you know the reason Earth Day was established on April 22, 1970 is because it was the one hundredth anniversary of Lenin’s birth?
Green is the new Red. And the greenies weren’t particularly adept at hiding that fact.
You might not know this, but it was in the pre-dawn hours of my 37th birthday that armed immigration agents stormed a home in Miami and seized little Elian Gonzalez.
Any old how.
In honor of my birthday, I thought I’d mop the kitchen floor and put the laundry away.
See what I mean? I know how to party.
