Happy birthday, now let's have cake!

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday, dear Drummerrrrrrrrrrrr,
Happy birthday to you.

Yep, it's Cinco de Mayo, the day that my first child was ushered into the world. It has been a big year for him, but I know it isn't birthday wishes that bring you here.

You're waiting for birthday dinner.

Admit it. You are, right? Right?

So in honor of Drummer Man's 28th natal day, we celebrated.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Rocky: Drama King, what are you going to have?

Drama King: Ummmm... Do they have corn?

Yes, we still find that same tired story hilariously funny.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Drama King:
So what do you hear from Z-man?

Evil Mother: *with an arched eyebrow* Who?

Drama King: Z-man? You know ... Tiny gay guy??

Evil Mother: *turning to Drummer Man and hanging on his arm* Please be normal, please be normal, please ...

Drummer: I'm a normal boy, as far as I know.

Drama King: Don't forget Roo-girl. She's a normal boy, too!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Drummer Man:
Seen any good movies?

Drama King: *launches into an uncharacteristically uninteresting tale of movies seen, leading to a discussion of weird, creepy stuff on an all-horror movie cable channel*

Drummer Man: Yeah, I loved that channel. I called and complained to the cable company when they discontinued it.

Drama King: One day when I was sick, I watched horror movies all day long. It was great -- of course, I had to sleep with the lights on for a couple nights.

Drummer: It was a great channel.

Drama King: My favorite was the one with the carnivorous breast implants ...

Seriously, is there a way to follow THAT comment?

Wonderhubby: You know they have white chocolate caramel macademia nut cheesecake here ...

Yep, that IS the only way to follow that.

Ah, your family never disappoints. But I'm having a hard time envisioning the freak that would even come up with that story line. Carnivorous Breast Implants. CBI. I will now live in dread of my boobs eating me while I sleep.

CBI. There has GOT to be a joke in there somewhere, but for the life of me I can't seem to find it. It just keeps coming back to me as being just as funny as a man eating jockstrap. And that's just not funny.

Happy late birthday to Drummer Man!

And, not to make you feel old or anything, your son is older than me. Ha!
