Here’s my plan for having the ideal (for me) birthday:
~ I’m going to eat sourdough bread and clam chowder and all the Chinese, Indian, Italian and Middle Eastern food I want.
~ I’m going to laugh a lot and reminiscence about old times with dear friends.
~ I’m going to stay up late and wake up when I feel like it.
~ I am not going to watch TV or read a newspaper.
~ I’m going to drink a martini at sunset at the Top of the Mark.
~ I ‘m going to shop for wine colored lipstick and perfume in Union Square.
~ And I am going to be carefree for a couple of days. No to-do lists, no worrying and I am going to live in the moment.
Doesn’t that sound like a good way to spend a birthday?
I’ll be back soon with lots of tales from our trip.
