Today is February 13th, and you know what that means.

It's my sister Jenny's birthday! Each year on this date, people all over the world, from every walk of life, flock into the streets to wish Jen the happiest birthday ever. In case you think I exaggerate, check this out:

Well, dadgum! No sooner had I posted the above and settled down for a nice nap when the phone rang. Two ladies wanted to let me know that my statement about "people all over the world, from every walk of life," was not quite accurate, since the flashmob video contains no Dominican nuns. They said they had wanted to join one of those delightful mobs, singing and jumping around, but were stuck at the convent because their motorcycle is in the shop. Then they directed me to this YouTube clip of them playing "Happy Birthday" on the piano. They said Jenny should consider their performance to be especially for her and asked if I would please include it in my post, in the interests of diversity. I am happy to comply.

Okay, now I rest my case! Froh Geburtstag, Jenny!

Thank you for the birthday songs! Do you think the nuns can do backflips on the beach like the guy from that first video?

I don't know if they do beach backflips, but here's a link to one who can do them in her garden:

And here's another one who does them on her motorcycle!

I'd say nuns are more macho than they look.
