I wonder how many other people think like I do, my birthday should be a Holiday, even a personal one, where I do not have to work and be waited on like a king. Ok now back to reality.
Now that I get to explore the other side of 50, yep I turned 51 today, I really do feel kind of scared. It is like I am waiting for me to physically fall apart. I mean my vision is already bad, the mornings are getting harder to get out of bed, and I go to sleep earlier and earlier. Hold it, I have been like that since I was 30.
I honestly would like to feel like I am a bottle of good wine, I get better with age. I know it is an old joke, but the funny part is there is some truth in it. I still feel like a 25 year old (well 26 now) caught in this old bear body. I know some 21 year olds who act more mature than me. So if it is what is inside that counts, well then I just turned 26, HA!
Yesterday, I started getting those birthday wishes on Facebook from my friends and family. One really stood out from a cousin of mine. it went, "Happy Birthday Billy! May your day be filled with love and laughter!" (Ignore the Billy part please, maybe some other day I will blog on that.) My response to the post was "Forget love and laughter, I want food and booze".
That was just the first thing that came to my mind. I mean my boyfriend is asking me what I want for my birthday, and I really and not giving him any clues. I told him once, "How about you buy dinner and drinks?" See food and booze. But thinking about it more and more, I really like the wishes from my cousin.
Love and Laughter! When you think about it what could be better than a day filled with those you care about and also care about you. I mean I really have a great boyfriend and some excellent friends all of them I love dearly. When we get together, no matter if it is for dinner, drinks (hmmm food and booze again), or a game of cards, we have a good time and laughter is a big part of it.
So now my response to my cousin who wished a day "filled with love and laughter", I am responding, thanks cousin! I will make sure it is centered around food and booze!.
