Man, isn't it annoying when people broadcast to the world that it's their birthday, just to get attention?
But isn't it sweet when someone tells you about someone else's birthday so you can send along your best wishes?
With that in mind, I'd like to announce that today is my twin sister Becki's 31st birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Becki!
Let's take a little trip back in time....
This is my mom, 35 1/2 weeks pregnant with twins (2 weeks before we were born.) Didn't she look great?
Here are the newborn babes (me on the right, Becki on the left), 9/2/77 (1 day old):
Here we are celebrating our second birthday. (I'm on the left.)
In honor of my...um, I mean, Becki's...birthday, I had a little party last night. Becki, sorry you couldn't come to "your" party, living halfway across the country and all. Crazy folks at Baskin Robbins put my name on the cake instead of hers. Weirdos. (By the way, don't you think everyone should have an ice cream cake from 31 Flavors for their 31st birthday?)
I was quite proud that my old lady lung capacity is still capable of blowing out four candles.
Lastly, I realize many of you have never met Becki. People always wonder if we look alike. We are identical twins, but we don't look as much alike as we did as children. I'll let you judge for yourself. (And let me take this opportunity to confess that the 1.3 MB webcam on my Toshiba PC is green with envy looking at the picture from Becki's high resolution Mac webcam.)
Becki, hope your day is great, and as always I wish we were together to share it!
