i missed my cousin emmy's birthday. i know because i had this conversation with her yesterday.
me: i called you fifty times* why didnt you answer. i had a pumpkin cookie disaster/miracle.
emmy: yeah sorry i have twins.
me: oh yeah thats right. (i went on to explain in depth how i lost half of the pumpkin cookie recipie and had to improvise and ended up adding extra eggs, pumpkin and salt and guessing on all the dry ingrediants AND it turned out ok) (its a long story)(but i think i tell it well).
emmy: that is a miracle.
me: i know right. its my birthday soon.
emmy: oh yeah when is that.
me: oh no i just realized its the end of october. i missed your birthday.
emmy: its fine i can never remember if yours is the 5th or 6th.
me: its the 3rd. what day is yours. the 18th? the 25th?
emmy: you are just kidding right?
me: the 23rd. its probably the 23rd.
emmy: the 20th.
happy birthday emmy.
*i really only called 3 times but i called rose another 4 times so it felt like fifty combined.
