Please read “About this project and the Author” for more information on my project. In this post, Daryl celebrates his birthday…or will he?:
“A few more weeks later was my seventh birthday. Or so we thought. This was long before personal computers and my file had been misplaced which brought some confusion as to when my birthday was. Some were saying it was February 23rd and others were sure they had seen March 9th in my file before it was lost. They came to me and asked if I knew the exact date but I wasn’t much help; I only knew I was about to turn seven and nothing else.
In a case like this, most of us would have picked one of the two dates to celebrate and then sent a request to Social Services to retrieve the information and that would have been the end of it. But we are talking about Happy Town here and there was no way the educators were going to let my actual birthday go without being celebrated. So it was decided I would get two birthday cakes, one on each of the dates that appeared in my file. When they asked my opinion about that plan, I told them it was a great idea! The other kids didn’t mind either plus, it would have been a little awkward for them to complain about me having two birthdays in a row while at the same time stuffing their face with my birthday cakes.
My file was later located and it was confirmed I was born on February 23rd. March 9th turned out to be the day of my christening…”
