#380 – Storm Watchers

with 13 comments

This storm floated in the first night of vacation at the beach house. It was pretty cool, watching the lightning flashes and all, but being on the boards all by yourself (save for the lone bicyclist) around one in the morning is a wee bit freaky. Totally worth it though.

I guess I should mention that today I’m a wee bit older, even though I don’t really want to. Quarter of a century, folks. D got me this little book of Snapple Real Facts, which I’ll be tossing in these posts. So, you better enjoy them…or you won’t gain any knowledge! Take that!

And in future news, today I will eat some cake.

Snapple Real Fact #74: You share your birthday with at least a million other people.

On a Tuesday in the rain,
I never thought there’d come a day.
I never thought there’d come a day, yea.
If I put myself to the test,
would I ever raise a fist.
Would I just shut my mouth,
would I just block it out.

  1. Happy Birthday darling 🙂 I’m happy to say that I will be sharing it with you and that I will be bringing a nice big cake with me!

    Yes, only you would entertain my strange tendencies by walking in a crazy lightning storm. ❤

    Trust me, you are not old! Far from!

    See you soon 🙂

  4. Ugh, 25 was hard for me. That’s when it finally started to dawn on me that I wasn’t getting any younger. Hang in there, 30 isn’t as bad as it sounds. And for your coloring pleasure:

    Happy Birthday!

  5. Tara: Lightning! Cake! Birfday! Hooray!

    Momma Dukes: Thanks! Hope your party goes well today. 😀

    Trina: What’s the alternative? De-aging? That sounds kinda fun!

    TK: Hee, oooh coloring book pages. Fun, fun. Thanks!

  6. No, you silly whippersnapper, the alternative to getting older is dead. So never complain about getting older.
