Well, my birthday came and went and I survived. I still don’t know why the birthdays are such a big thing to me this year. I have not spent every birthday with my family so this fixation is a little weird.
I got through the headache, the shakes, the tears and spent half the day at a casino. In memory of my brother? Nope. He was not a gambler so this was definitely not in his memory. But he would have gotten some major giggles over the machine Holly found. Steve got a lot of laughs from a college nickname I had (thanks Deltas) that I was totally innocent of (totally!). Thanks Holly, that made my day even if I did not win any money. Thinking of how much Steve would have laughed at the game and your impression of the main character is priceless.
What did I do in memory of him…spent the other half of the day watching football of course.
