The birth of meeeee!

Tomorrow (Friday, July 26) is my birthday. I’m telling you this now because one of the main ways to celebrate my birthday worldwide–by which I mean it happens in both Eagan and Apple Valley–is to have something unusually awesome for breakfast.

I am a big fan of breakfast. No matter what a crappy day I have had, I can go to bed and think, “Well, in the morning I get breakfast.” Even when I have a stomach bug or food poisoning, I go to bed thinking, “Maybe in the morning I’ll feel good enough for breakfast.” Sometimes it’s really very simple.

So! I always felt weird about having no better answer than “Thanks” when people said happy birthday to me, so now I answer, “Happy my birthday!” Because really! There’s no reason you shouldn’t have a happy my birthday as well as a happy your birthday. And one of the best ways to do that is with a croissant or apricot breakfast crisp or weird fruit fridge porridge or french toast or…breakfast stuff. It’ll be good.

I am like a twelve-year-old when it comes to my birthday. I have been poking at the packages on the hearth for days now. Poke…poke…pooooooke…. It also turns out that Amazon will display your wishlist with the items obscured, so you just see how many there are, which is like the digital version of poke…poke…poooooke…so, being mentally 12, I do that too.

I love birthdays. I really think this is going to be a good one. For all of us, I hope.

  1. I am noshing on my own breakfast (oatmeal w/chocolate chips and hazelnuts) as I read this. Thinking of you having a joyous birthday is an excellent start to my own day. Happy, happy birthday, dear M’ris.

  2. We had bulgar with bananas, walnuts, and cinnamon-sweetened sour cream (yay whole grains!) plus cream-cheese fried eggs and a peach. Sadly, it’s become the PNW here and was too chilly for a smoothie.

    Happy Birthday to you! And I shall do my best to have a happy your birthday as well. (And I will totally adopt this birthday response.)
