I'll bet you thought it was just Thanksgiving--or as it's known around our house, the Ides of Thankshallowistmas.
M tells me his birthday falls on Thanksgiving Day on average once every seven years. He says this is also true of anyone whose birthday is November 22nd, 23rd, 25th, 26th, 27th, or 28th, which are the only other possible dates for the fourth Thursday in November. All Thanksgiving birthdays follow a repeating pattern of six, five, six, and eleven years. My man's last one was six years ago (2005), and the one before that was way back in 1994. So the next one will be in five more years (2016), then six years after that, then eleven years, and so on. But M says that if he's still around by 2033, he won't know Tuesday from August, so who cares.
Well, me for one. I care a whole bunch. Here's to the guy who walks me twice a day whether I feel like it or not:
Happy birthday, kemo sabe!
