It's my birthday today and I can't go dancing!
But I have made sure everyone knows that today is the day. As soon as I got in the taxi this morning and dispensed with the explanation on my cast I said "It's my birthday today" !!! Thus forcing the poor guy to utter my first "happy birthday" of the day.
Then a nice young man held the door of the elevator open so I could swing in and I said "thank you, it's my birthday today"…. prompting the second good wishes of the day!
I wonder if anyone replies nastily or ignores that announcement…. I will experiment all day and see.
A woman here at work just commented that she does not know any other grown up person who gets so excited about their own birthday.
I found an unexpected surprise from my sister this morning on her blog … Cat's "tribute" but don't believe everything you read in the press! :-)
