so i was born (a couple 160s)

Today is my birthday so i wrote a couple 160s...

160 - 37, just numbers

so i was born
one o one
today

thirty-seven years ago
thirteen thousand five hundred and fifteen days
each one a gift

it's been good
but it's only getting better.



160 - big bang theory


sharing space
with 8
stuffed green peppers
will agitate
you to vacate,
so i was born explosively;
this answers
those questions about
what is wrong with me.


What can you say in 160 characters? (spaces included) Go see Monkey Man.

I am going to be a bit scarce today but i will catch up with you tomorrow & promise I will take a bite of key lime pie just for you. smiles.

Monkey Man said...

Happy Birthday, Brian. Many honor you today and deservedly so. Enjoy your day and thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160 even though it was your birthday.

As to 160 #2. Me, too. Green pepper and onions. I like them, but they don't like me in the end.

Tom said...

ha, good to know. happy bday...i wish i could say it was all downhill from here.

PattiKen said...

Had to read that a couple of times before I got it. Ah-ha-ha!

And MM's isn't bad either.

Happy birthday! (Got a long way to go before get to the birthday wish on your 37th candle. Oh, and the one to grow on!).

DJan said...

Oh wow, 37! You are just a baby, young enough almost to be my grandchild, certainly my child. My mother was nineteen when I was born, and I was nineteen when my son was born, making a grand total of somewhere in the vicinity of your age today. Happy birthday, Brian. You were a real find...

Save a piece of cake for all of us :)

Joy and peace,
Susan

Nice celebratory 160s, Brian. I love family mythologies, so your second one really made me smile.

There were a whole lot of numbers in the first one...but I have some different numbers for you: I beat you to the finish line by three months & a day. :)

I already wished you HB all over blogville, but what's one more?

Green peppers were the magic trick to kick start your Mama to bring forth your loveliness? Interesting... never heard of that one before. I agree that the best is yet to come. Today is my Mom's bday as well. I hope you get all the hgs and loving you can handle.
cheers to you

TALON said...

Happy Birthday, Brian. Hope you've had a beautiful day. I'm giggling over the stuffed green pepper explosion. Pregnant women do tend to overdo it on certain food items - lol!

ladyfi said...

Happy Birthday! Hope you had a great day.

the walking man said...

Fashionably late to the party Brian I can see that all the booze is gone, the cake eaten, wrapping paper (a fire hazard you know) is all over the place and every lampshade is out of place. All signs it was a hell of a good party.

Hope your birthday party was just as fun. Be Well old man and many more to come.

Magpie said...

Happy Birthday to you! It's getting late, I almost missed it. Sorry. Nicole had a big research paper to do this weekend and we only have the one aircard.
Do you think the time of day we're born effects us? I was born at 13:13 (on a military base) and always thought it made me just a little weird. :) Hope you had a wonderful birthday!

Boonie S said...

Happy birthday!
I loved the post too.

All the best, Boonie
