My birthday or the twenty-fourth anniversary thereof

My birthday was yesterday. Please note that I am telling you this after the fact and not before the fact so that you will not feel the need to go out and buy me something. I am just going to tell you about it because I need something to type in this blog about because I have been neglecting it. When I can’t think of anything to write about, it makes me feel like I haven’t been doing anything worth doing, which is probably almost true.

Yesterday was not really my birthday because my real birthday was twenty-four years ago. Each of us can have just one physical birthday and the annual celebrations of birthdays that people hold are really just anniversarys of birthdays. So the next time you hear someone talk about her fiftieth birthday party, she is probably talking about reincarnation.

I was quite tired on the morning of the twenty-fourth anniversary of my birthday because I had been awake a long time the day before taking the Engineer In Training test and visiting with my friend in Spokane, but I made it to church and taught children’s church anyway. My Mother and my Father and my sisters called my cellular telephone and greeted me. Aside from the really nice vegetable stir fry that my friend bought me in Spokane on Saturday, that was about the best part of the whole thing.

I wonder if I’ll be able to come up with anything interesting to type before graduation.

    Just out of purely morbid curiosity, why is “Father” capitalized, while “mother” and “sisters” are not?

    Oops, I meant to capitalize “mother.” But I neglected to. I just got it fixed.

    On the other hand, it may have something to do with our paternalistic society. Who knows.

    nice blog dog,
    you should write a blog about your experiences in children’s church, like your favorite coworker
