W Is For Birthday

W Is For Birthday - Birthdays

“My parents are staunch Republicans and were big fans of the Bush administration, but I think the real obsession stemmed from my Mom’s crush on George W. Bush and was then passed on to six year old me. So, whenever nineteen year old me gets accused by my parents of being too progressive, I remind them that when I was six I had a George W. Bush-themed birthday. Disturbing? Amusing? Maybe both.”

“It was the spring of 1994 and family photos at Sears were ‘the thing to do.’ I found my one outfit that wasn’t full of bird poop and walked proudly into the mall. Guys, this was waaaay before bird flu when it was ‘cool’ to walk around with a pet parrot on your shoulder. I think this was the era when had a whopping five parrots in our home.”
