Happy birthday to me

July 21st, 2009

And what is the very first e-mail in my inbox this morning, this morning of my 42nd birthday during which I shall make my second triumphant appearance on the “Today Show”?

A witty e-card from Amazing Genius Science Girl?
A supportive note from the ConductMom?
A sexy love poem from Mr. Improbable?
A “You go, girl!” message from the Fabulous Bureaucrats?

No. It is THIS, from Amazon.com:

“Save 32% at Amazon.com on ‘How Not to Act Old: 185 Ways to Pass for Phat, Sick, Hot, Dope, Awesome, or at Least Not Totally Lame’ by Pamela Redmond Satran.”

THANKS, Ama-freakin’-zon-dot-com. Happy birthday to you, too.

And honey, I do not have to pass for fabulous.

    This post got me laughing, and then laughing some more, and then belly-laughing until I cried. Thank you, Robin. And Happy Birthday!
