I have a birthday coming up.
Let’s just say I’m not happy about it.
Lazy Dad asked me the other day what I wanted for my birthday. I didn’t even have to think about it, “NOT to turn another year older. THAT’S what I want for my birthday,” I said.
So if you’re wondering how old I’m going to turn I’m afraid you’ll just have to guess, cause I’m not telling you.
If you guess a number between 32 and 34 you’d probably be dead on, but who can say for sure?
In other news I posted this beauty of a Twitter update last night. I felt it was one of my better ones, but it got a very mediocre response. Probably because I posted it in the evening and like NO ONE’s on Twitter in the evening. So do me a favor, would you? If you thought that was funny, retweet it for me. I could use a moral boost. You know, since I’m turning some random number between 32 and 34 soon.
Not sure what’s going on there. Except that I am turning that random number between 32 and 34 soon. Do people lose their minds when they are some number between 32 and 34?
I also wanted to let you all know that lately I’ve been struggling over the “tone” of my blog posts. I’m afraid they come off really sarcastic. When in reality, they are supposed to be “light-heartedly” funny. There’s a fine line between sarcastic and funny, isn’t there? And I think I wobble on that line quite a bit.
There’s also a fine line between funny and annoying. But that is one line I’m sure I NEVER cross. Not ever.
At any rate, I wish you could hear my tone of voice, see my face, hear my laughter as I write these bad boys. I literally giggle all the way through them. Well, except for today. I haven’t giggled yet. I think it’s because I’m depressed I’m turning some random number between… oh, you know.
So when you think to yourself, “Geez, she is so sarcastic. Does she even HAVE any joy?” Scratch that and think this instead, “Geez, she is so infectiously funny, even though she sometimes sounds sarcastic, she clearly has LOTS of joy.” Mkay? It would make me feel better about my posts.
As a side note: Apparently I need a lot of affirmation today, have you noticed? Do people who turn some random number between 32 and 34 need a lot more affirmation suddenly?
And now, we end this blog post with this Public Service Announcement:
People who are about to turn some random age between 32 and 34 should be handled with great care. They may have unexpected crying jags, they may throw tantrums without notice, they may make whimpering noises in their sleep.
If you find yourself near a person who is about to turn some random number between 32 and 34 proceed with caution. Don’t make sudden movements and make as little eye contact as you can. Saying things like, “You’re so pretty,” “You haven’t aged a day over 21,” “How do you stay so THIN,” will increase your odds of making it out alive.
This has been a Public Service Announcement.
