Birthday: And It Was Good

FAVORITE SURPRISE:
Walking into the bathroom first thing in the morning, and finding a sign on the toilet seat lid that said “Happy Birthday”. So much better than notes stuck to the mirror.

MOST UNORTHODOX BUT ENJOYABLE BIRTHDAY SENTIMENTS LEFT ON VOICEMAIL:
“And don’t forget: your face is a stupid place!”

“Hello, my little husband”

FAVORITE BIRTHDAY FOODS PROVIDED BY FRIENDS:
Mashed potatoes,
Macaroni and cheese,
Fried chicken,
French onion dip,
Dr pepper,
Cream soda,
Green beans,
Giant generic grocery store birthday cake

FAVORITE BIRTHDAY ACTIVITIES:
Toasting beloved friends

Playing celebrity password

NEWEST BIRTHDAY EXPERIENCE:
Birthday time on Facebook- virtual plants, birthday cakes and greetings from an assortment of unexpected folks.


MOST PERFECTLY TIMED BIRTHDAY PRESENT:
Pevear & Volokhonsky’s translation of Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” at the exact day and time I was about to purchase it for myself.

BEST BIRTHDAY MEMORY:
All of it.
