Happy Birthday to me, almost
So that's what 68 looks like. I always wondered. I would swear I'm closer to 50. Well, except for the aches and pains, the wobbly memory and the row of pills I take everyday.
The Thursday night group turned out in almost full force tonight to celebrate my birthday. I hadn't actually thought much about it until I got to Mendy's. I should have been tipped off when the owner of Unraveled wished me a happy birthday. Turns out two people had purchased gift certificates there for me. In addition to the gift certificates I received four bottles of wine, a gift certificate to Trader Joe's (and a dinner with margaritas), lunch tomorrow and a new Walkman and a portable CD player. Plus some great cards.
When Mendy purchased the Walkman the salesperson tried to get her to get an IPOD. She explained that I would never download music. "He's a very 20th century person." I suppose that's true. I'm not really into media. Rarely watch TV. I don't usually know what people are talking about when they get onto the subject of any of the popular TV programs. Almost never go to movies. I listen to classical music, I knit and I spend time with friends. It's more than enough.
