Overheard at dinner:
“Daddy, I had a fun time eating your birthday cake and watching you open presents yesterday.”
“Good Ryan. I’m glad you had fun. Do you know who has a birthday next?”
“That’s right, and do you know how old she will be?”
I know this is exactly the type of response that Jonathan was hoping for. Snickers, smirks, and snide comments like, “What? Forty-one? So you think Mommy looks older than Daddy?” flow freely tonight.
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday but never remembers her age.
