Happy birthday to me

Note to the grounds crew at Fenway:

When the announcer says, after a 2 1/2-hour rain delay, that they'll be trying to squeeze in the game before more showers come through, do you think you could, uh, speed things up a bit and not spend forty-five more damp and chilly minutes combing the infield for the fifteenth time? Some of us have babies to feed at regular intervals.

At least we won. And the beer was free.

Sorry so late, but Happy Birthday anyway. My older daughter shares your special day and turned eleven (or fourteen, it's hard to tell with the attitude I get).

Thank you! As your daughter may know (if she is a musical theater geek), our birthday is also Eliza Doolittle Day. Happy birthday to her!
