Most memorable birthday:
When I was seven, my aunt and mom took me down to my aunt’s lake house in San Angelo, Texas. I loved going there, but this day was more memorable than the others.
After a short car ride, I found myself running along side the lake, enjoying the cushy grass and boats careening by. I noticed a goose following me, and being a seven year old, I giggled. The goose walked beside me around the entire property, and even followed me to the boat when we were going fishing and tried to board. She waited at the dock and we ‘played’ for the rest of the afternoon.
My cake was already lit when I went inside, and I made the obligatory pony wish and blew out the candles. But, wait. What’s this? The candles relit.
And relit again. And again.
My mom and aunt looked at the box they’d snatched at the store and found they were the joke candles. Har-de-har. Seven year old me wasn’t amused.
Safe to say, I always think of that birthday when I’m trying to overdo myself with my kids parties. Is a deterrent. Oh, and that goose followed me around the rest of the summer. She waited in the driveway every day when I left until I came back. I miss Lucy.
