...go, Shawty, it's yer birfday...


JUST SHY OF HIS 43rd BIRTHDAY, THIS GUY WOULD DISLOCATE HIS KNEE ON THE DANCE FLOOR AT A WEDDING. 
INSTEAD OF 'PARTY[ING] LIKE IT'S 1999,' HE PARTIED LIKE HE WAS 99. AWESOME.


Yep, kids, today is your uncle's birthday. And, yes, that's me up there. And, again, yes, they had cameras back then. You were expecting a prehistoric cave painting? Gee, thanks a lot.

So, the title of this post was the very first thing that went through my mind this morning. Ordinarily I might have been more annoyed by that but, these days, I'm figuring that I should be grateful I have the mental capacity to remember song lyrics in the first place. So if 50 Cent wants to park himself in my subconscious mind today, so be it. Happy birthday to me. 

Holler!

  24. Happy Belated, and welcome to Club 43. Did you sip some Bacardi (like it was your berfday?)

    By the way, that deer/doll thing in your crib is both creepy and cute. (Not sure which wins out!)

    1. Thanks, Kelly! Nah, no Bacardi despite the fact that it would have carried through the theme nicely. ;) I stuck with Champagne that night.

      And the deer/doll? I think creepy wins by a landslide! ;)

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I always appreciate your thoughts. Your comment will appear as soon as I can publish it.

p.s. - Contrary opinions or constructive criticism are also fine but "The Bedlam" doesnt' serve as a platform for random (or anonymous) acts of offensiveness. Rude? Deleted.
