the month of march is many things to me.
*st. patrick's day.
*10% chance the sun will make an occasional appearance.
*90% chance the march showers will make way for the april showers, which will bring...may showers and so on and so forth, until the sun finally makes an appearance in mid-july and we celebrate by attending about 30 weddings smashed in between then and august.
*seven birthdays in my family circle
*three birthdays in my friend circle
and one birthday all for me me me.
well, me and Amy O.
everyone has a birthday twin or two or 5 million.
mine happened to be in my town. at my school. in my class.
we had a joint birthday party in the 4th grade at Skate World.
stuffed our faces with pepperoni pizza and buttercream frosting.
soared 'round and 'round that smooth oval shaped rink,
flapping our arms to the chicken dance.
the faint smell of hot dogs intertwined with sweaty socks wafting through the air.
the whole sharing the spotlight thing...
who am i kidding.
this birthday bird was meant to fly.
the smell of sweaty hot dog socks was not faint.
but, if those perfectly minty friendship bracelets were to appear under my birthday tree all happenstance and like,
I would share.
I could do that.
Daniel, are you taking notes?
yes. I said birthday tree.
