It’s my birthday today. Birthdays make me super emotional. I’ve been crying all day, not sad crying, just I’m-the-center-of-attention-for-no-reason-crying (what, you don’t do that?). Anyway for the last few minutes this had me shedding more pretty big tears of attention. My friend Sir Ian Moore wrote this for me, I’m also printing this out for my frig. Go check out Ian’s blog for more funny, intelligent and witty Irish things. Thanks Ian, this is really cool and touching.
Megan’s Birthday Poem
It’s that time once again
We celebrate the passing of a year!
(and what better way to celebrate
But by the passing of some beer!)
You’ve managed to amaze the world,
By challenging people’s minds.
By point out some obvious facts
(“it’s LFTB, not pink slime!)
You’ve taught us all about ranching
And what really happens on a farm!
(and while GMO’s won’t give us super powers
It certainly won’t do us harm).
I know how beef is slaughtered!
And how Monsanto helps us all!
And that if you look in a farmers barn
you WON’T find a chicken 20ft tall……
You’ve helped open people’s eyes
You’ve shown us the truth
You’ve shown us some amazing things
(even if they are links to cowgirl boots)
I think that you’re amazing
And I thank my Irish luck
For getting to know Megan Brown
(who doesn’t mind that my rhymes suck)
So Happy Birthday Megan
I hope you have a very special day
You’re an amazing wonderful person
In every single way!
Welcome to the world baby Alice. It was a pleasure to meet you! I even broke my own cardinal rule and touched you before you are potty trained (new babies are scary, I don’t want to break you)! I just couldn’t help it; you are so cute and obviously deeply intellectually gifted.
I’ve been friends with your Mom since we were 12 years old – since she is one of my oldest friends, I’m adopting you as my niece. I apologize in advance for the embarrassment I will cause you as a teenager.
However, I promise to always be there for you and your Parents. I promise to teach you how to cuss properly (when you are 18, of course), open a wine bottle without an opener (when you are 21, of course) and give you your first riding lesson (with a helmet, of course).
I also promise to do everything in my power to leave this community, this country and this world a better place for you, your gender and your generation. Just promise me you’ll carry on that legacy.
I love you baby Alice, I can’t wait to watch you grow up! Congratulations Jennifer and Karen, I’m so proud of you and honored that you are including me in Alice’s life.
