Birthday Shout-Out: Martha (Again!)

I can say with 97% certainty that for 37 out of 37 years, my grandma has gotten a birthday card to me on time. 

With 96% certainty, I'd guess that on no fewer than 36 of those 37 years, it arrived several days early.

My grandma's 91st birthday is today, and my card for her is still stuffed into the outside pocket of my backpack. 

Obviously I did not inherit promptness from my grandma.

Luckily I did get her good skin, fabulous hair, fast typing skills and a cool family .... of which she very well may be the coolest since she kind of started it all.
