The Three Day Birthday

My birthday is March 15 but my birthday celebration started yesterday. Melissa took me to see The Pacifier. I would not rate it in my top 10, but it was pretty funny.
Today I had my birthday supper. Each year mom cooks us the meal of our choice on our birthday. I have asked to chicken and dumplings for supper with apple pie and ice cream for desert every year since I was twelve.
We are going on a eleven year tradition here. She made it for me tonight because I have to go to a City Council meeting tomorrow night and it starts at 5:00.
Tomorrow is the real birthday. I am opening presents tomorrow. I am actually getting presents this year. They don't trust me anymore. They tried to give me money last year so I would go and buy myself a cell phone. I spent the money on school supplies instead.
This three day birthday thing reminds me of the first line from the children's book Pancake Pie:
A farmer named Festus has a cat named Mercury. Now Mercury had a birthday 3 times a year because it was more fun that way. . .
More updates on Tuesday.
