Can I Get a "Do-Over"?

I mean, if one is forced to sleep through most of their birthday, do they get, or apply for a "do-over" later? Or, do I skip a year?

Although yesterday was to be a celebration of my birth, I was most grateful that it was the birth-date of the most recent kidney stone, instead. I was simply the happy host-mother, exhausted and weeping with joy (not) that the little darling was finally out in the world. If I had the energy I would have slapped the sh*t out of the little bugger.

Of course, I saved the little darling wrapped in swaddling clothes  in a plastic bag, to be sent by the doctor for analysis.

But I really wanted to know if I get a 'do-over' a second crack, if you will, at a celebration of my own birth?  Well, apparently, I do.  I was just informed that I will be guest for a dinner evening with (no names 'cause I ain't been told) at the Henlopen City Oyster House next Monday evening. I also learned that it was to have been a surprise  last evening, but the kidney stone birth took precedence and the surprise fizzled.

I'll not complain, since I will be in great form by next Monday with not a trace of pain, soreness, or discomfort of the past 2 weeks. Oh, Oysters Rockefeller, you shall be mine!

Oh, and while I was recuperating, the birthday fairy stopped by last evening and left a bottle of Bombay Sapphire on my doorstep. That fairy is no slouch, believe me!

Ready to put the Mary-Jane's on and get back to work tomorrow and into the rhythm of the season.

And so it goes.

    happy happy birthday, cajun! although that's a shitty way to spend one's natal day.

    hopefully what the birthday fairy brought you can make up for all the pain in some small way.

  2. I'm so sorry that I missed your birthday. Or, the birth of your stone. Whichever!
    Enjoy your dinner next week!
