Brother, Can You Spare a Comment?

It's my birthday tomorrow, and in honor of that international event, I want to issue a friendly challenge. Please help me beat my comment record for my birthday!

I believe the record is 32, set way back when I was in China, doing some un-comment-worthy thing like, oh, becoming a mother.

But this is different, Dear Readers, because, see--I'm getting older. I need more comments to sustain me and the blog. It's just part of the aging process, I'm afraid. Please send help.

It being my birthday and all, that breaks the ice, in case there's nothing else on your mind.

And yes, I know I'm a comment ho. There's time for rehab later.

I need to take one of your classes soon, too. You'll make me feel young, you spry chicken, you.

Have a GREAT day tomorrow!

If a few comments are all it'll take to get you feeling the love on your birthday...well, then - a comment you shall have!

Happy Birthday.

Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these. - Susan B. Anthony
Happy Birthday Sam! Bill,Mary and Jinji

I've come over here cos Mamasphere told me to! And - well - I've got a comment I can spare.

Happy Birthday to YOU! And yes - getting comments is kind of addictive.. I don't think any rehab is going to get rid of that!

Yay, I'm #32!!!

Every day I check your blog - I still look forward to reading your voice and love your mom insights.

Someday our little divas will meet! Last week Noelle met Aretha Franklin at a CD signing, and I couldn't help thinking she was milking it just like Jarrah would have. She blew a kiss to Aretha (her first blown kiss ever!) and Aretha declared she was sooo cute so it must be true. Yes, I think she is learning from the master by osmosis somehow.

Happy happy day, Sam!

Very happy birthday to you, ho bag!
