Did you know that a whole bunch of cool stuff happened in history on June 24th?
- The First War of Scottish Independence ended with the Scots kicking the Brits asses (that's the WilliamWallace/BraveHeart/MelGibson war, if you don't know. Remember when MG was all sane and yummy-like? Those were good days.)
- The colony of New Jersey was founded (before the Brits (ya, Brits again, they were totes greedy back then) took it and named it that, part of the state had been settled by Dutch and Swedish ppl, you know that means, right? That's right. Good Chocolate. No wonder the B's wanted it.)
- Siam was renamed as Thailand... again.
- A Captain Cabot (re)discovered(ah-hem, while working for the Brits) Newfoundland, Canada (after the Vikings had discovered it long before, of course.)
Did you know that you were born on June 24th?
It's your birthday and I'm so glad that you were born.
Do you know why?
If you had never been born, I would never know what time it is, and all those things that you remember for me, well they would never be remembered at all!
So, my theory is: You were born for me.
You were born to make my life a little bit easier. To make it run a little smoother. As my lady Martha S. would say, "It's a Good Thing."
Thank you for being born, K.
I love you inside, outside, upside down
as much as brand new socks,
PS. So, yesterday, I Googled what ppl that are born on your day are supposed to be like, just in case you didn't know and have been doing it wrong. But I think you've actually been doing pretty good. Check it out.
PPS. When I'm old, I want to be just like you....
