Tomorrow is my birthday, aka International Day of Awesomeness, and since I age backwards (actually I’ve been holding at 29) this is the year The Husband and I turn the same age. Next year he’ll be older than me. It’s funny how that works, isn’t it?
And in honor of I.D.A., I will share with you my birthday wish (it’s a doozy); I wish for safety, and democracy for everyone. I wish for everyone to have access to clean water, affordable health care, and education. And I wish for the right for everyone to go to school to get that education even if they happen to be a girl (and if you are reading this and you are part of the Taliban, please note that you are an insecure, cave dwelling, dickhead. Let the girls go to school). I wish for dictators to have the wisdom to know when to call it a day (your moment in the sun is over, move along please) so that peaceful protests can remain peaceful and not simmer into frustration fueled violence. And while I’m wishing, I’d also like a pink pony.
