Today is Nonna’s 74th Birthday!
This is how the day began: I came downstairs at 5am singing Happy Birthday to the little lady. She starts clapping and dancing around the kitchen. I give her my card (a “To My Wife” Card) and she started laughing hysterically…only to start crying three seconds later saying, I no have a to my wife card in thirty three years. Whoops….
Nonna’s Birthday Wishlist:
1) Toilet Paper
2) Paper Towels
4) An Electric Frying Pan.
What is an electric frying pan you ask…it is a giant frying pan that you plug in (obviously). I asked Nonna why she needed one…her response: So i don’t messin up the stove. When I said “you will just mess up the counter instead” she told me “you ruinin my birthday.”
Nonna’s Birthday Party:
So, true to form, she invited everyone to her house for dinner. So yes, she cooked her own birthday dinner. Here is the menu:
String Beans (cause “all you people watchin your figure”)
Roasted Chicken and Potatoes
Banana Cream Pie and Birthday Cake.
In Nonna’s words: “I lostin half a pound. I want it back.”
Now she is doing the dishes…believe me, I tried to do it…she told me again that I was ruining her birthday. 😦
