Today Is My Nana’s Birthday

Short post incoming, picture-less.

Make it snappy.

Yes yes. You’re always so quick to the gun…

First and foremost, words cannot properly express my Nana’s grandiosity; however I will give it a —succinct and nectarous—shot.

My Nana advanced one spot on her timeline today, to another double digit spot on her calendar. The first digit is 8; the second will remain shrouded in mystery.

Ahh, 8: that is her favorite number. That was also my favorite number growing up, because it was her favorite number; I loved—and still do—her that much.

Did you realize that today is the 8th of the 8th? That makes a lot of 8’s for someone whose favorite number is 8. Although this favoritism might have stemmed from the fact that her birthday is on the 8th of the 8th, that does change the reality that her favorite number is 8.

Briefly put, all that matters is that today is a rocking woman’s birthday, as I know it is the case for many others out there—although I will stick to Nana in this post, seeing as I don’t know anyone else.

You don’t know anyone besides your Nana? You would win a popularity contest.

Well, I do… But not whose birthday is today.

We are going out to grab a coffee and see a movie tonight to celebrate her birthday. We are going to see the last showing at the cinema, which is customary for us—the showings we go to are always post-10:00PM. Talk about a NON—Night Owl Grandma.

And you’re a SAC.

So Awesomely Cool?

Ahh… Why thank you.

Knowing her, she won’t be asleep until at least 3:00AM or 4:00AM tonight, hours after the movie has finished. I’ll definitely hit the sack before her, as I do almost every night of the year. Remember, NON.

And finally, I must admit that I don’t even celebrate my own birthday that much, but for Nana, going out to see a late movie to celebrate is something I want to do, for her.

Which birthday do you like to celebrate the most? Is it your own, or someone else’s?

Foot-note: eight eight eight eight eight eight eight. 8.
