In Which I Celebrate My Birthday

Public Service Announcement:

          It has been deemed necessary to
disclose certain petty news with you, the readers of this
blog. Earlier this week, upon a certain day, an anniversary of birth was
observed; or, in a more common phrase, a
birthday was celebrated.

          It is hard to conceive that the
honorable authoress of this blog, Miss Frannie, (in case her name you forgot)
turned the spritely age of twenty-three.
Yes, indeed, the authoress has added one more year to her, at this time, short life.

          Rest assured the day was made as delightful
as possible. At the beginning of the week, the young woman was taken to a much
anticipated viewing of Les Miserables; it was a film worth the small fee and
much more.
 

          The festivities continued on into the
next day when Miss Frannie talked her most honorable brother and spirited cousin
into a few hours of square dancing. Oh! If only you could have seen the joy radiating
from each face, the quickness of each step, and the laughter from each mistake
(for there were too many to count).

          The
day finally arrived and it must be noted that it, the day itself, was absurdly ordinary.
It involved hours of work, college classes, and a fruitful trip to the grocery
store (literally). All in all, it was simple and almost forgotten
even by the birthday-girl herself. (Perhaps her old age is affecting her memory
. . .)

          The next day began again much as
normal until, later in the night, a sweet gathering of friends, cupcakes, and
brownies were made known in a surprise after church. Much laughter ensued when
Miss Frannie failed to blow out the candles stuck deep in the brownie pan—she found
it terribly difficult to “calm her face down” from smiling. J

          So, now that you, the faithful
readers, have been properly lulled into slumber, I, the narrator, will leave
you. (Would you look at those
commas!)  Only
beware! Soon, there will be the opportunity for one of
you dearies to receive a token of love in the form of a giveaway.
More information will be coming forthright!  

          Delighted to be another year older,

                   Frannie
