Birthday convergences

• Today would have been my mom's 61st birthday.

• Started the day off with a trip to the vet: Screwlucy has a hurt paw. Turns out it had been bitten by another cat. I'm willing to bet it was Freyja. But that was an improvement over how we went to bed last night, not knowing where Lucy was. When getting Lucy signed in at the vet, they asked how old she was. Since we did not know for sure, except that she seems about a year old now, we decided to make today her birthday.

• While in the exam room with the vet, I mentioned that today was Lucy's birthday. The vet said, "So is mine."

• One of my students just drunk-dialed me... on her 21st birthday while out celebrating with a bunch of friends.
