The One with the Tiara

"So.  What's with the tiara?" the Husband asked cautiously.

"It's my birthday.  And I wanted one. So I got one."

The Husband turned to Elder Son.  "Your mother has lost it."

Elder Son watched silently as I slowly touched the matching sparkly wand to my head.  He said, "I see nothing out of the ordinary."

Elder Son gave me a hug and left the room.

I told The Husband, "I'm his Fairy Oh-My-Godmother. "

I'm 50 today.
I'm seriously considering wearing the tiara to classes at the university this morning.

Happy birthday, Roses.

Roses said...

Thank you!
I decided not to wear the tiara to class because it's be too much of a distraction... to me.

I *did* however go back to the store and bought more tiaras for my friends who were coming to celebrate my birthday with me.
Picture six 50-ish-year-old women wearing tiaras at a winery.

It was wonderful. :-)

I need to tuck that idea away for my own fiftieth!

Roses said...

Oo! The part with tiaras for everyone? Or the part with the winery?

Because our winery let us paint wine glasses and take them home. It was a marvelous, fun activity... with wine. :-)

I was thinking tiaras. And I would invite guy friends, too, because who needs gender norms?

Roses said...

Everyone needs tiaras.
No one needs gender norms. ;-)
