I couldn’t resist scheduling a post to show up right at 5:17 on my birthday. I will write about what kind of a day it was after it happens. I probably need to get to sleep early because my mother likes to call me early in the morning to wish me a happy birthday. Inevitably she will say something like:
Mom: “So you are what, 26 now?”
Mom: “You are getting old… Wait, that means I am getting old!”
Me: “It happens to the best of us.”
Other than that, it will probably be a pretty normal day. I have to go to work, we have our big preview for Twelve Angry Men. We have some notes to finish up during the day, so I probably won’t even really get to go out for a nice dinner or anything, but we shall see. For the past four years my birthday has fallen during tech of a show, so I am used to it. I will be happy to just be able have dinner with Ruth and then have the weekend off!
I enjoyed the email that I got from my grandparents as a birthday wish:
Dear Alex: We have a big smile on our faces as we did 26 years ago.We visited the Weismans at Maa’le Mich Much a couple of weeks ago. We still enjoy touring and going into the schools. We sometimes miss Winter skiing. Take a run for us and exhale A WHOOPEEE! We hope to see you soon. We love you.What is happening in the life of our BIG BOY? ~Nana and Papa
So, we shall see how things go. It’s another year, I’m gonna try to make the best of it!
More on the day later.
