I saw this quote recently. It could not be more appropriate for the birthday party
that I attended on Friday afternoon for two 68 year old men!
It all started out quite elegant with table decorations of beauty. The menu included marigold petal pancakes, cream of pumpkin, marigold petals and corn soup followed by tamales stuffed with pork and covered in a huitlacoche sauce. It all ended, eventually, with Day of the Dead bread glazed with brown sugar and tejocote. Okay, foodies what is that? None of us knew or know.
One of the guests, who will remain nameless, brought blond wigs that had been
trimmed for each recipient along with straw hats. The hats said "Born to be Wild".
It is pretty fun to see how people's personalities change once they put on a prop or costume.
We were all laughing at the shenanigans - some of which I cannot show as Facebook or Google might ban me forever. Let me just say that the other guests got into the act as well. It was so much fun.
Thankfully we were in a private dining room.
I think the older we get, the easier it is to be totally "over the top" silly. Yup, we're all adopting a childlike behavior pattern. Heck, who is going to tell us we can't?
Laughing is good for the soul, they say.
Happy Birthday Trey and Frank - may you live another 68 years or..........well, you know what I mean.
