I guess it's all about perception

Two weeks ago I posted about being carded at a restaurant for a NON-alcoholic strawberry daiquiri and that I must look really young.

Well today, upon asking one of our first grades how old she thought I was turning today, she replied:


Ok people. I’ve had a pretty good spread before on ages, anywhere from 18 – 32 but really 37.

So to clear up any misconceptions I am now officially 28.

And if you think this post is a bid for birthday wishes, well you may be right. :)

Thanks JCol, yep I got the card and LOVED it.

In fact you will appreciate this. One of my happy thoughts for today is:

A deluge of birthday cards

How appropriate on my birthday, and I had three e-cards waiting for me this morning and one of them was from sweet ol you.

*I would have sent an e-card too, but since I don't have someone's email address...*


You are deserving of all the best wishes today my friend!

And by the way... did you happen to send that little munchkin on a time-out after all that?! lol!

Thanks Everyone for the well wishes. Awww shucks I feel special.

Stephanie - Ha ha, the little girl is soooo cute and funny. She is originally from Scotland and just moved to the states last year. She's begun to replace her cute scottish accent with a texas twang but i love to hear her talk. And how can you punish such a sweet heart?

Happy Birthday, my beautiful first born. Sorry I couldn't be there on your actual birthday - I'll see you this weekend. Hope it was very special for you.

Happy Birthday, late!

Our Sunday School kids once asked Rob how come Miss Jayleigh married him when she was 16 and he was 40?

We were 20 and 23 at the time, and they were going by Rob's already graying hair. Hilarious.

Are you kidding me??

I'm a loser... I'm a loser...
This is how you do the loser dance.

I'm a loser... I'm a loser...
I give you permission to kick me in the pants.


Happy Birthday Katie! Sorry I missed it.

Mr. Benjamin Unestra McMinneessoottaa,

Due to your udder (yep I whipped out the udder instead of the utter) lack of birthday wishes yesterday I cried myself to sleep last night because my northern blogger friend had forgotten me. I'm sure that after much therapy and some electro-shock treatment I may, MAY recover from the emotional toll that I have been subjected to.

Ok, so that was a bit on the dramatic side, Jessica is rubbing off on me more and more each day.

Thanks for the wishes.

Blogger Ben said...

Yeah, but you still love me... especially cause the Loser Song made you laugh.

That's my way to get out of trouble by the way... I just make people laugh and then they can't be mad at me...

Also, I noticed that you made no denial of my accusations of "Romance" between you and Steve.

Why is this?

Happy Birthday again... 28!?!?!

Sheesh that's old.

10/13/2005 9:02 AM  
Blogger Katie said...

Ben oh how I've missed you.

Well not really, ok, maybe just a little.

And yes you do make me laugh, but that isn't the only reason why I still like you: You have an AMAZING wife, you're smarter than me, you are a good writer, and well, ok, you're funny and that is a definite bonus with all the other stuff.


28 is old but still younger than you. Hahahahaha.

10/13/2005 9:13 AM  
Blogger Ben said...

Really, 28 is younger than 32.

Katie... queen of the obvious.

Blogger Amstaff Mom said...

The accusations were on one of Jes' posts, yesterday's post I believe.

Blogger Katie said...

Thanks JCol - I knew of what Mr. Ben was referring but I was again trying to dodge/avoid his suggestions.

You have no effect on me Mr. Ben.

10/13/2005 11:29 AM  
Blogger Ben said...

Hmmm... But Steve does?

Hee Hee.

Blogger Katie said...

Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben, Ben

This is the moment when I realize that ignoring you is the proper response, as your only goal in this is to illicit a response from me.

Well, no response my friend, NO RESPONSE.

But I will draw your attention to the picture of Steve kissing the dog (THE DOG).

10/13/2005 11:58 AM  
Blogger Amstaff Mom said...

Sorry. I should have caught that K-T. You're too smart to not know that was what he was referring to.

And for what it's worth. My dog is totally in love with Steve/Jubal.

10/13/2005 2:58 PM  
Blogger Katie said...

Ha ha, no problem JCol.

And I think the feeling was mutual on Steve's part. Abby found a good friend in him.
