They got me. They got me but good.
My mother convinced me that she wanted to have an intimate dinner with me and Janaki. They urged me to take a nap as my allergy medicine took hold. I woke up while they shopped and nailed down final details. I woke up from a drug induced slumber, read and welcomed them home.
Then I went to my intimate dinner.
All of the gaming groups, the Swamp Road Regulars, Cindy, her husband, Bhak and her newborn child and the big surprise, my father.
It was the perfect birthday surprise and my mother and Janaki planned it.
I am blessed.
May my second thirty years be as wonderful and blessed as my first thirty.
Thank you all, you know who you are.
