I started a bit early, 10:30 the night of the 11th. I tried on my new hightop control underwear, hightop control stockings, and my new DD bra with my red dress on top and my new black shoes on my feet. I looked hot. I poured a glass of white wine, and i walked around the house trying to find someone to surprise. I don’t normally wear dresses. It was just a taste of things to come. By 11:30 i was back in my PJs and on my second glass of wine. I argued with Cecilie about the finer points of space and time. I held my present from Deb and David in my hands fully intending to open it as soon as the clock struck midnight. Cecilie tried to convince me that my birthday did not actually begin until i went to bed and woke up again. I assured her that that was not how it actually worked, and that it was technically already 3 hours my birthday in the place where i was born. The clock turned and flashed 0:01 at me. Finally March 12th. Happy birthday to me. I opened my present, finished my wine and went to bed. I only remember thinking that the morning was going to start too soon. Hours later i woke. 30 just felt sleepy, but then so did 29. Maybe tomorrow will be different.
