Today is my birthday. I am 75 today. I tell everyone it is my birthday. This could be problematic. If I kept it quiet and was not so self-referential, then if someone said, "Happy Birthday" I would be happy and joyous! But if I tell everyone, and no one seems all that interested, no cake and candles, no chocolate and such, then I would go into the tank and get whiney. I would start to think, "Boulder has abandoned me." "No one cares." "My life is in ruins. I am alone in a world of darkness" You get the point. So there is a lot on the line today. On top of all this, it is Holy Week in the Catholic Church and everyone Catholic feels badly about partying during Holy Week. Since I am not too good a Catholic, this is not my issue. So I hope all my non-Catholic and bad Catholic friends come through for me. If not, I will work on acceptance tomorrow. But my prayer list will be a lot shorter if that is the case.
