"Born on February 29th"

Exercise #59 : "Born on February 29th"

Use this as your opening line:
I was born on February 29th.

Un, Deux, Trois...

I was born on February 29th, 1964, and I am technically only 11 years old. You don't even know how many times I have been jokingly refused a drink. I can't even laugh at the quip anymore. I used to have the willpower to force myself to smile at least when someone thought they were the first one to think of such a hilarious joke, but now... Well, now I just sneer. Either that, or I completely ignore them. I'm not sure which is the better response.

Everyone assumes that, since my technical birthday only happens every four years, I only celebrate my birth every 4 years. That's crazy. I mean, absolutely crazy. I usually celebrate my birthday the day before unless someone has planned something special on another day. I consider myself lucky. Who else has such a flexible birthday?

Today's was a bit short. Sorry about that. My mind is kind of elsewhere at the moment because of my recital coming up this weekend. I promise things will get back to normal after Sunday. In fact, the posts should be of much better quality than they have been as of late. Whoops. :)

As far as #fridayflash goes... We'll see if I get there. I have a ton of stuff to get done tomorrow (I know, I know... Excuses, excuses...), and the only time I'll be able to get it done will be much later in the evening. I may have to postpone until next week. I'll let you know in tomorrow's exercise.

Peace.
Stef.

P.S. Do you know anyone that was born on Feb. 29th? I actually knew a guy when I was in high school, and I can remember how everyone teased him. I can't imagine how annoying that must have been.

I won't wish you luck at the recital (as I'm sure that you don't need it) so have a great time.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
