It was a fun birthday. Even though I am not really a Birth-day kind of guy.
Tina arranged, via Facebook, a karaoke outing with with my work crew b-day eve, Keeka and Kirby in tow as well. It was a pretty good turn out. I did not choose the best songs to sing. Two of them being way out of my range. I did save my best (Soul Man) for my last tune.
I worked early the next morning and large amounts of caffeine buoyed my, already flying high spirits. I received a happy birthday from everyone (was even sung the Swedish Birthday Song). There was some honest disbelief that I had hit the half century mark, with a caveat being a wish they had similar energy and fitness level when they reached this number of solar orbits.
The Happy Birthday part was expected, the latter was not. That kind of accolade made my day, multiple times over.
