A birthday, of sorts.

.



Some trivia for you: today I am 20,000 days old.

But the real trivia is this: On the day I was married, I was 10,000 days old.

It wasn't planned that way, it just happened.

And, no, I do not plan a cake with 20,000 candles!

As I anticipated hist event for over a year, I had actually planned a family dinner of some sort. But Martin is in Malaysia at present and the boys gave us tickets to go and see The Taming of the Shrew in the Botanical Gardens that (by chance) are for tonight. So, rescheduling. What's a day or two in 20,000?

Maybe a nice dinner tomorrow for day 20,001.

  3. 20,000 days?! Wow. I just told Ryan that and she said, "I don't think even God is that old!" Kids... you gotta love 'em! Well, those of us who aren't 20,000 days old do ;).

  12. Well happy birthday to you, Lee. That sounds a lot of days. I can only count up to 10. I guess that's more than ten, yes?

  16. Happy 20000!!! I realized that I knew my wife for a quarter of my life at one point, but the coincidence between the 10000 and 20000 is really cool.

    Keep up those calcium tablets old boy or you will look like your poor apricot tree!

  18. Yeah, I think the astrological signs are different when counting days.
    Like, lessee....20000....hmmm.
    Does that include a few leap years?
    Perhaps you were born under the sign of the European Wasps, and that by watching over them, much good luck will be had by the bugs.
