Good morning!! Welcome to a very special edition of Wordful Wednesday!!! You’ve probably already figured out that today’s not an ordinary Wednesday – because you’re all lovely intelligent, intuitive readers, of course – but probably also because of all the exclamation marks.
And the cupcakes.
Ahh, but why all the exclamation marks and cupcakes? That, lovely, intelligent, and intuitive readers of mine, is the question. Are we celebrating the fact that we’re one day closer to my ineluctable victory? Am I feeling sparkly because my amative feelings for Dave are outweighing my emulous ones today?
All of those things are true – and I’d love to hear how you would define those wonderfully wordful words in the comments – but that’s not why we’re celebrating today. We’re celebrating because …
It’s Shutterbug’s birthday today!! Happy Birthday Sis!!!
This same time last year saw a lot going on for our family – some good, some bad, and all of it compressed into a whirlwind few days – so we couldn’t celebrate in quite the way we wanted to. But that’s all changing this year! Today’s word is convivial: fond of feasting, drinking, and good company.
In other words …
Tonight, my darling Shutterbug, we are going to be convivial! (And maybe tomorrow, too).
Meanwhile, just because I’m going to be enjoying myself for the next couple of days doesn’t mean I’ll be slacking off on the important things around here. Like winning. Come back tomorrow to see my strategy in action, won’t you?
