Fifty is nifty

Happy Birthday to Crazy Aunt Laura!!!!

CAL, do you realize how many different ways one can say your new age? Check it out:

In Roman numerals: L

In pig latin: iftyfay

In German: funfzig

In Lincoln: two score and ten years

Without numbers: a half century

If one were slightly obnoxious: Oh no! Laura is the big five-oh!

If one were a really obnoxious niece: Oh dear gawd, Laura is over the hill.

Not that I would ever say something like that to you. Or about you. Because you are most definitely not over the hill. You are, however, a very groovy, very young aunt, whom I love a great deal. I hope your day is special. Something tells me it will be.
