But Judy Left the Same Time

Mmm . . . Cake!

Today, I noticed my customer's birth date was the same as mine.

Well, she was quite a bit older, but the day was the same. "Looks like we share a birthday!"

Hooray for smalltalk!

"Oh really? My grandson also has the same birthday!"

Some people really want to share their birthdays with others. But I don't.

You all know I'm a little crazy about my birthday. I don't seem to get any better the older I get.

The last couple of years, I've taken a full week's vacation around my birthday.

I know it sounds silly, but I have to take the vacation sometime and this gives me plenty of celebration time.

Tonight, while I was talking to Jacque, she springs the "Can I ask you for a favor?"

Whenever someone asks me this, I'm always worried about what it is they need that I can screw up. "Oh no. What?"

"We're going to Maine from September sixth to the eighteenth--"

I didn't even let her finish. Which isn't unusual. I'm bad about interrupting. But I'm usually not whining so much. "That's my birthday week!"

" . . . "

"You'll be gone my whole vacation! My birthday!"

Yeah. Not getting any better.
