Today, I turned 31. It was a good day, just like any other. I got a check in the mail from my father. It was made out for $31, one dollar for each year of my life. I also got a $20 Starbucks Gift Card. I got 4 phone calls (one from my sister in England), 3 emails, 1 e-greeting and 1-real card. Free dinner a bottle of wine with friends. It was great, and I didn’t spend a dime.
