Soundtrack time. . .
I remember, when I was about 8 or 9, learning for the first time about Golden Birthdays. At the time, my neighborhood pal, Wendy, and I were Most Disappointed. Her Golden Birthday (she was born on the 1st of the month) had already passed - long before she even knew what a birthday WAS. And mine? Well. . . I'd be TOO OLD to even enjoy it (I was born on the 30th of the month)!
(Truth be told, I was right -- I didn't enjoy my Golden Birthday. When I turned 30, I was 7 months pregnant and was working as a CPA in the midst of a very busy tax season. I remember not being much in the mood to celebrate anything. . . let alone a Golden Birthday!)
Anyway, TODAY is Brian's Golden Birthday: 19 on the 19th.
And it IS going to be a Golden kind of celebration!
Golden sunshine (so you can actually USE your new birthday longboard!).
A spring break trip (coming right up) to the Golden State.
Shining, glittering, dazzling. . .
Happy Birthday, Brian! You're GOLDEN!
(And a special shout-out to my wonderful brother-in-law. Happy FIFTY, Kurt! Welcome to . . . the Fabulous Fifties!)
