So much for birthday wishes...


Yesterday was my real birthday, and as it happened to be, a Sunday. I was playing monkey in the middle, but I had to run out and chase after a runaway football. I picked it up and sent it flying back towards the circle, a brilliant display of my, um, incredible football prowess. On my way back to the game, I stopped, spying a perfectly, spherical dandelion. I carefully plucked it from the ground, and contemplating dreamy, birthday thoughts, (Here I am, another year older... Do I feel any different?) I gazed at my sweet dandelion, and raised it to eye level, preparing to blow, to blow and make my wonderful birthday wishes...

And then, something whizzed towards me, colliding with my wishing flower, and poof, I stood, amidst clouds of dandelion seeds, horrified. I heard a dull thud, and I witnessed a football bouncing away from me. My birthday, spoiled by a football.

No, not really, we got a good laugh out of it.
