Wakey Wakey Silv!

Ok, so today is my b-day and Silv was absolutely clueless! Hmmm, perhaps I should tell you the story from the beginning.

The first thing I do on a morning that I’m not working, is check my e-mail. Silv had been up for a while already and I had gotten my coffee and first cigarette of the day when I logged on to check the mail. First message of the day came from Quirky, not a b-day message as she didn’t know, but just a note about her challenge to me in regards to Dr. Seuss posts. I’ll be putting that one up later today. The other message was a “Happy Birthday from MSWorld!”

So I say’s to Silv, I say’s “Aww, ain’t that sweet, MSWorld sent me a birthday message.”

And he says, “Isn’t that nice.”

Nothin’ else, no Happy Birthday Skye, no nothin’ nada, zip, zilch, no acknowledgement on it at all! Now that really doesn’t bother me, I couldn’t care less about birthdays, but I waited for the light to come on anyway. Well, it didn’t!

Almost 2 hours later, Becca comes in (she and I had been sleeping under the stars last night by the fire), and she asked me when I came in. I told her that it had been at midnight last night because the ground was hurting these old bones of mine.

Then she asked me, get this “Are you ready for your presents?”

And Silv says, “Presents? Is it your birthday? Oh, it is your birthday! Happy Birthday!”

And I say’s, “It only took you 2 hours to clue in Silv, you’re such a Maroon! Why do you think that MSWorld sent me a Happy Birthday Wish?” I was laughing the whole time I said this of course :D

And he say’s, “It just totally went over my head, just whooooosh, right over. It never dawned on me that you’d get a birthday wish because it’s your birthday!”

And so Becca gave me a card that she made out of foamy art supply stuff, some beads, specifically leaves, a rose, a butterfly and a ladybug, and topped it off with a heart sticker. No words, just a nice scene of flowers, bushes and trees. She also made me a bookmark using a large star bead tied to a friendship bracelet with heart beads tied in at the bottom. She made this in all my favorite colors! Last but not least, she made me a Morocco Drum, so I used it right away and played the “Happy Birthday to me” song. It really was sweet of her, she always makes me my gifts and cards. 

And still we laughed at Silv for not remembering my birthday. Granted, the only birthday we ever really celebrate is Becca’s, but she’s been talking about mine non-stop for the last week now, and Silv just never clued in. 

To be honest, this has got to be the funniest birthday morning I have ever enjoyed!


  1. Happy happy birthday Skye!

    Another funny birthday:

  2. Thank you Minka! I'm off to read it a.s.a.p.! :)

  3. Happy Birthday! Guys are just plain clueless sometimes. I can totally see him reacting that way. Have a fun day, Girl!

  4. Thank you Reffie :)

    I actually spent yesterday enjoying myself, Becca and I went to the beach for the day and then when we came home, Silv made supper and we had a fire that Becca and I slept out by. It was a really nice relaxing day and I loved every minute of it! Today was spent rearranging my bedroom, pulling weeds and doing laundry. Now for the rest of the day I'm just going to sit back and relax! :)

  5. Happy Birthday, Skye...a bit belated, but good intentions nevertheless! It's what Silv does all year that matters, not just what is done on a birthday, Christmas, etc. Yeah, I know, that was a lot of BS, but it sounded good, didn't it?

    All the best to you as you start a new year.

  6. You're right Deb, that did sound good :) The thing of it is though, I don't think I've ever laughed so hard on my birthday as I did this year, so yep, it's what he does on my birthday that counts too, and this was the best present he could have given me :D

    Thank you for the well wishes, even if only a day belated! :) Yep, still smiling over it!


I've decided to use comment moderation simply because that way, I never miss a new comment on my posts. I'm really quite forgetful and tend to not remember how many comments had been in each post the last time I looked, so please bare with me and my memory lapses :)
