Actual conversations I've had about my birthday...

Moomoo, my 7 year old granddaughter:  Happy Birthday Grandma!
Me: Thank you Moomoo.  Do you know how old I am?
Moomoo: No, how old are you Grandma?
Me:  I'm 52 years old!
LONG silence on the other end of the phone...
Moomoo: WOW! Grandma, that's really old!

Ty, my nephew:  Aunt Becky Happy Birthday!  How old are you?
Me: I'm 52 yeas old!
Ty:  Cool, since I'm dyslexic that means your only 25 years old!

CL, my husband:  Happy Birthday Dearest!
Me: Thanks Honey!
CL: Just think, in 5 years you'll be as old as me!

Buster: Now that your more than 50 years old, you're really over the hill!  That means you're more than half way done...
Me: (no comment)

For an extra entry in the drawing guess which conversation I liked the most!

  1. We are the same age. I will be 52 in September. I hope you have a wonderful day. I like yours and Ty's conversation the best. I was thinking the same thing about when mine comes up. Here's to 25!!!! You know my address, right?

  2. I tried to leave my comment but it wouldn't go through. I'm trying again. First, Happy Birthday and may God bless you with many, many more. I am going to guess Ty's was your fave conversation. Who wouldn't like to be 25 on their 52 birthday. My email is brendakeefer@comcastnet

  10. When my mother turned 50 years old, my hubby, her son-in-law, greeted her with "Happy Birthday. How does it feel being half-century old?" My mother was mortified but that realization, that she is half-century old!

It was then you were given good luck kisses from them. So now- you get to collect as many kisses as you desire! Happy Belated Birthday Becky- Rise Up and keep shining girlfriend!
