When I was either 8 or 9 my mom asked me what kind of cake I wanted for my birthday. Having recently discovered a love for Sara Lee strawberry cheesecake I asked her if she would buy me one. I remember her being a little miffed that I wanted a store bought cake, but she agreed.
My request didn't stop there, I also asked if she could buy me my very own cheesecake!
That's right.......I wanted that perfectly delicious cheesecake all to myself. Just put that baby in front of me and let me have at it!
I resorted to my favorite complaint that as a third child there aren't any pictures of me, so my mom whipped out the album which contains pictures from when I was born (which now reminds me that the picture I was looking for is probably in my baby book).
I'm pretty sure the only reason any of the kids from my generation made it past childhood was because our parents didn't get into a car accident with us in the car.......because you know that seat was used just to keep us from rolling around on the floor boards of the car!
Happy Birthday to my fellow Gemini's and Happy Wordful Wednesday.
