The way the calendar works, one’s birthday doesn’t always fall on the same day of the week every year. So it is with my birthday, which the past few years fell on a work day. Luckily, this year my 50th birthday fell on a Saturday. And when my family texted me yesterday to bid me their good wishes, they wondered what I would be doing during the day. A natural question, what with my 50th falling on a weekend. I told them I wouldn’t be doing anything big, just relaxing at home.
Oh, boy, was I lying like a dog.
That’s yours truly posing for the camera early Saturday evening at one of the more popular restaurants in the Madison area, The Great Dane. The dress is literally brand new, as well as a birthday present to myself. Earlier in the day, I made a quick bee line for errands and stopped off at Forever 21 in West Towne Mall to treat myself to not only a new stylish addition to my wardrobe, but also something that will fit me comfortably and not show a lot of leg (I didn’t have enough time for me to shave them, and I’ll explain why in a moment).
