What if

March 28, 2017

What if you could (legally) change your birth day? Would you?

(Not the year.)

(Or maybe the year?)

What date would you prefer to your own?

Me, I think February 18 can't be beat. Plus a different date just wouldn't be mine. I sometimes dream I'm married to someone else & living in a different home. It's disorienting. It's unpleasant.

I guess I could get used to a different date, if I had to, but I think it would be like having a facelift & having to prove to your peers, "No really, I'm your age & went through what you did!" Underneath, it's still you.

I took a little poll & everyone I asked is perfectly happy with their birthday. Horrified at the idea of a different one. I think only folks born the first week of January might opt for a replacement.
