HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!
Yes, today is that special day when my ever-lovin’ mama was bornded. She was very young at the time, and doesn’t remember much about it, but she’s fairly certain that her mother was present.
She’s ~mumblety mumblety~ years old, but you’d never know it. Followers of this blog or of my Twitter feed know she started collecting conditions and incidents about ten years ago, and is thinking of submitting her list to the Guinness Book of World Records. Her list includes:
And she can still run rings around me! She’s like the Rasputin of the medical indisposition world, only without the beard or the drinking or the bad character. I’m hoping I’ve inherited some of her stamina and drive. Those, coupled with my own innate indolence, ought to keep me going for a good, long time.
I hereby invite you to leave birthday wishes in the comments for my super-duper mom. 🙂
