Don't say, for instance, that for your birthday, ALL you really want is a couple minutes alone...
Face it, people! You don't ONLY want a couple minutes alone...
A whole day.
At the spa.
So I had to giggle when I read my sister, Dee's recent comment that included the following, and I quote:
"PS. all I want for my birthday is a post (preferably with old pix that will make me laugh)."
Be very careful what you ask for.
I think I was happy to have a new baby sister.
I don't really remember that well.
I was three.
I remember what I got for my birthday that year, a trike.
It was purple.
I remember the dresser that we got before she was born.
I remember how we rearranged the furniture so the bassinet would fit.
But I don't remember that one essential moment when someone took me up to the hospital and I met my little sister.
(Call me a material girl, but it's true)
Thank goodness for pictures.
Otherwise we would have no proof that I took this very special moment to poke her in the eye.
