The Birthday Queen

It's true. Last Friday was my birthday. I am officially on the downward trail to... well, I won't mention any numbers.

In an attempt to make me feel special, my housemate and coworker- L. bought me a tiara, a purple ring (I dubbed it "the ring of power") and asked me to parade around school in the get-up for my special day!

Now, anyone who knows me, knows that normally I do not like being the center of attention at all. However, something happens to me on my birthday. I become giddy and flamboyant like a jack-in-the-box. When my principal didn't announce my joyous occassion over the announcements, you better believe my class and I went down to the office to set the record straight! (yes, he did later announce it...)

My students proudly exclaimed to all who passed by what a special day it was. They would point out my crown, ring, and even shoes! (I know it will date me, but I wore my new "jellies"). I had on "glass slippers", making me all the more qualified to be queen for a day.

Even though it was all pure silliness, I thoroughly enjoyed being "The Birthday Queen"!

  1. LOVE IT! I can just see you parading around the school as queen, and I know your kids loved it. I'm a little jealous of the shoes (yes, it dates me, and yes, I laughed at your not mentioning numbers comment--really?? just wait, it gets better!).
    Happy birthday again friend, and let's get together soon. Wear the shoes. Carry the tiara in your purse, just in case.
