Happy Birthday To Me

Friday, September 11th was my birthday — one of those traumatizing, ends-with-zero birthdays. So I told my husband Mark that, unless he wanted me to be a basket case on nine-eleven, he’d better plan something good.

So, did Mark rise to the occasion? He sure did, as I describe in this three-verse limerick:

Happy Birthday To Me
By Madeleine Begun Kane

My nine-one-one birthday was great!
Hubby Mark planned a fabulous date:
God of Carnage — fine play —
Four fab stars on Broadway.
Yes, I married a wonderful mate.

The play featured James Gandolfini,
Who did not play a mafia meanie.
Hope Davis starred too
And Jeff Daniels. Woo Hoo!
Marcia Harden’s the fourth. Creds ain’t teeny.

We dined on gourmet Mex cuisine:
Toloache’s the best I have seen.
And we drank and we danced
At two bars. Age advanced?
Well, perhaps … but I felt sweet sixteen.

    Sounds like you had a fun birthday. You have a lovely husband who was really thoughtful to find something nice to do to celebrate your 16th plus some months birthday.

    A birthday on the heel of summer
    Portends well for extra slumber
    But I won’t tease ya
    ’bout eating tortilla
    I’d rather have a bagel.

    I know that I’m very new here
    But I’d like to make something real clear
    Nine-fifteen is the date
    No, I’m not four days late
    I am getting a jump on next year

    Happy Birthday Madeleine!
