Tomorrow is my BFFs birthday. I jokingly refer to him as my BFF but you know? If you rank your best friends in terms of those people who have known you the best for the longest? He would win. 17 years we’ve known each other. And during those 17 years we’ve been quite close. You know, we live together and all. He knows my favorite books, music, and movies; and he has since he was old enough to retain such knowledge. So, by all Junior High definitions of “BFF” – he would totally get the “Be Fri” charm and I would get the “est ends” charm.
He turns 17 tomorrow. If he were a wizard he would be considered an adult and would be allowed to apparate legally and fly out of Hogwarts on his broom if it was over taken by an evil Ministry of Magic steward. I’ll not reveal whether or not he is a wizard, of course, no one wants their memory wiped – I’m sure.
People tell me all the time how awesome E is and I never know what to say. “Thanks,” is usually what I go with but I want to say. “I know.” Because I do. If I could create a recipe that would tell everyone how to create a kid just like E, I’d be filthy rich. But I always have to admit: He was born awesome. He’s always been laid-back and easy-going. Even as a baby, so I probably can’t take too much credit for his awesomeness. Especially considering the hell he went through during my college years as we were living on quite meager funds and he spent many a late night up at a computer lab at my college. You know – kids love that stuff.
So tomorrow is his birthday. He’s had a bit of a stressful week. He has rehearsals and theatre obligations all weekend and the next 2 months most of his free time will be more of the same. He loves it all, of course, but it can make life a little stressful. So, for his birthday, I’d love it if you guys could help me wish him Happy Birthday. He’s on Twitter, as most of you know because if you’re smart you follow him because HE IS FREAKIN’ HILARIOUS. And we interact a lot on Twitter which, you know, I think is also hilarious but it may be one of those things that he and I find HYSTERICAL but the rest of the world finds boring.
So, follow him on Twitter. Or don’t follow him, just simply wish him a Happy Birthday through twitter. Or, if you’re not a tweeter, just do it here. I’ll make him read the comments. Either way – help me tell one of the most awesome teenage boys in the world to have the Happiest Birthday Possible. He rocks my socks off and since I’m not filthy rich and can’t take him to NYC for his birthday to see Real Broadway Shows, maybe I can make up for it by having everyone I know online wish him “Happy Birthday” an entire day early.
I mean, those two things are close in awesomeness, right?
