Some interesting facts about the number 33...

Did you sense a theme here?

Yes kids, I'm celebrating my 33rd b-day today. It's my first year living in Florida, but it's not the first birthday I've ever celebrated down here. This is the 23rd anniversary of the infamous "Hot Fudge Wig" episode that has been a source of comic fodder in my family for years. The gist of the tale is this: when driving down to Florida to visit family, we were also celebrating April vacation and my 10th birthday. Our wonderful cousin Nancy, who many of you know as "Jovifan"
came along for the ride. We stopped at some place in the morning for breakfast, as we were transporting overnight in the now retired giant blue van, complete with "Cap'ns Chairs." After breakfast, the waitresses regaled me in a song of Happy Birthday...and brought out a giant chunk of hot fudge like 8 in the morning. Later on in the day...something happened to the van and we were forced to stop in Jacksonville to make repairs. In the parking lot of the garage we were patronizing someone had abandoned their toupe/wig/hairpiece, and it had since collected some filth and oil smattering. Nancy and Elizabeth, mocking my cake from earlier in the day, dubbed it the "Hot Fudge Wig" and told me that was my next birthday present. I didn't have such a great sense of humor about it...but as the years went appreciation for it grew. In fact, a few years ago it was re-crafted and given to me again. You don' t want to know.

Alright everyone, I'm off to the pizz-ool...have a lovely day!!!

Hey Mo,
Happy Birthday to you. I hope that you have an excellent birthday. And thanks very much for the card. Eva sent you something for your birthday, it is totally you so since it is from Eva and it is so you, you must accept it with no fight. (I have no idea when it will arrive)

Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday! Thanks for the hot fudge laugh. After an evening of parent conferences, it was awesome to have that laugh!
