Losing it

Am I losing it?

I was certain it was grandson Cooper M.’s birthday. It falls 7 days before his father’s birthday.

It’s mid-morning and there’s nothing on FaceBook. Surely, have they forgotten him?

Fixed it in two minutes.

Ping!, my watch beeps. From his father. “It’s not his birthday. It’s a week after mine.”

Shit!

I’ve lost it.

Happy first birthday, Cooper! Whenever it is!

  1. It’s not case of losing it, it is rather, a case of premature discovery. Better early than never, as they say in the classics. One formidable child Cooper is.
    Happy birthday Cooper.
