I’m battling some kind of yuck.I don’t feel sick, I just have some scratchy, yucky something in my throat. So, for this reason I suffered an anonymous embarassing moment today!
Today is my sister’s 15th birthday (which is crazy to me that she is that old)! I told my mom I would get up early to call her favorite radio station so they would announce her birthday on the air. Well, bad news for me, they had already aired them- BUT they would air hers if I sang her happy birthday!
Just a sidenote- Singing in public is my BIGGEST fear, no lie! I would rather walk a tight rope on a 10 story building than sing in front of an audience, so that wasn’t much of an option!
Okay, so I was like, “I can’t sing! I’m sick!” And they said, “We’ll sing with you.” So, because I love my only sister dearly, I sang her happy birthday for thousands to hear- with a terribly scratchy throat. My sister called after they had played it to tell me how sweet I was and how special I made her feel… and then she said, “ You didn’t tell them who you were, did you?” I was feeling the love at that moment. Thanks sis. Now I have to join the Witness Protection Program or something for my terrible attempt at Happy Birthday.
Tonight Will and I are going over to my mom’s house to celebrate my sister’s birthday. I’m most looking foward to the turtle cheesecake she picked out… and watching the Apprentice after she opens her presents! We got her a cd case, the girl has a thousand and they are everywhere! I think my mom got her a digital camera, and her biggest present is their trip to Kuwait in 2 weeks to visit my dad. I suspect my dad will call sometime tonight, which will be nice because my main communication with him is email. It will be like 2 in the morning there, but at least we’ll all get to pass the phone around!
Have a great evening!
