We might have missed Lilu’s birthday – that is, when we got her it was mid-June of 2007, and the farm lady said the kittens were about 6 weeks old, so we counted back and assigned her a birthday of May 1st. And then on May 1st of 2009, we totally forgot that it was her second birthday. But it may not have been. Maybe it was today. Who knows? It’s a cat, so who cares? Well, Ignatz does.
Me, I have just now decided that keeping track is not my job, because it’s simply not in my skillset. Example: I have one brother, just one, and I usually mark the occasion of his birthday by waiting five days and then saying to myself, “Oh wait, didn’t something important happen last week…?” I admit it, I suck. The best brother ever does deserve better.
Anyway, happy birthday Lilu, if it is indeed your birthday. Nate, I put yours in my PDA. Maybe this year you’ll get a card in a language you don’t know. Won’t that be nice?
Song du jour of the day: The Balkan Girls, by Elena Gheorghe, for Romania. Historically, getting all regional is not a formula for success, but there are now enough Balkan countries to win it for this song.
