This weekend, my parents called me from California and left a message on my cell.
My mom was saying, ‘Oh, hi honey, it’s 8:30 here, very early. We’re driving along and (blah, blah, blah…). Anyway, we wanted to call and wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!’
I could hear my father, who was driving, chime out in the background a little out of sync, ‘Happy Birthday!’
It was absolutely adorable and kept me laughing for about 20 minutes. I was in tears when I told Mark about it. He laughed a belly laugh and then called his mom to tell her.
The thing is, it wasn’t my birthday. They were a fully month early.
