Birthday Fever

While mostly in jest, Laura has long proclaimed that I have Bieber-fever. My retort, naturally, is that knowing the words to a couple of Justin Bieber’s choruses does not equate to full-blown fever.

But the other day that all changed. My temperature definitely went up when Laura shared with me that Justin and I have a common birthday, March 1st. After a bit of research online, I also learned that we have common roots grounded in the soil of Ontario, Canada. Creepy, I know.

As I usher in the big 30, I’ll not only be celebrating with family and friends, but somewhere I’ll also be celebrating with the Biebs. While I still have a couple of hours to think about what I’ll wish for as I puff out my birthday candles, I know that if I were Justin I’d ¬†wish for a long-lived squeaky voice, as I’m almost certain that the cure for Bieber-fever is puberty.

    The look on my face is that of a boy who knows David Bowie’s spandexed ass is about to enter his life again as it always does on Aaron’s birthday. Oh thankyou Labyrinth for creeping me out all those years and thankyou aaron for not believing in variety…not one bit.

    Nice Ed. Real nice. In all seriousness though, that’s a little creepy.

    Who wouldn’t want to see Mel circa 1988 in some spandex.
