Turn back your clocks. For my mom.

We all know how much I love and obsess over my birthday. I did not get that from my mom. In fact, I have no idea where it came from. Probably my own selfishness and self-centeredness. Since I love my birthday so much, I can’t help but be jealous that my mom gets an extra hour today for her birthday. Her birthday is 25 hours instead of a measly 24. God (and the US Government) gave my mom an extra hour for her birthday! There are not words to express how jealous I am. Sure, my birthday eve is celebrated with a national holiday and fireworks and flag cake. But I will never get an extra hour. And my mom has made sure that we all know it. (One thing I maybe did get from my mom is the gloating.)

Happy birthday to the greatest mom in the world! You totally deserve your extra hour on your special day.
