Today is my Quarter-Birthday.
I’m 61¼ years old today. Joy!
It is entirely appropriate to celebrate one’s Quarterday with a quarter of a
birthday cake, an entire birthday cake being presumptuous, excessive, déclassé.
In lieu of a quarter-cake, a cupcake or two is an acceptable substitute.
I will abstain from cake, however, now that the holidays are behind us. No,
a simple meal at one of my favorite local restaurants will be just fine.
We’ve got reservations for two at Horsemeat ’n’ Waffles. I love the waffles
- just the thing whether you want to go sweet or savory. The appetizers are to
die for... but the manes are where the chef really shines.
