What Manner of Celebration Is This?!

On August 2nd we celebrated Rita’s 60th birthday at Anne and Carl’s house. You know you’re celebrating a different type of birthday when:

  • People sing “Happy Birthday” at super fast tempo, blending the lyrics into one giant word (Happybirthdaytoyouhappybirthdaytoyou…), in order to go do this: 20130808-080554.jpg
  • There are actual traffic cones to mark hazardous areas in the house. 20130808-081521.jpg At my house, we treat hazardous areas as a mechanism for Darwinian selection. Anyone who can’t successfully navigate those areas probably wasn’t really fit to be with us anyway.
  • There are elaborate photo shoots before, during, and after the party: 20130808-083956.jpg

    One thing is certain for any party – cards without gifts are no good.
