Happy Birthday Dad!

What a lovely surprise!

Cousin Sammy has informed me that today is Pi Day, which celebrates the fact that today’s date – written in American format – is 3.14. And I’m sure you’ll all remember from Grade 5 maths that 3.14 is also the common abbreviation for the mathmatical symbol p. Conveniently, today is also Dad’s birthday, and since Dad has a Ph.D in mechanical engineering, the fact that it’s also pi day seems oh-so appropriate.

Given that Dad wasn’t in New York to accept his birthday cake (maybe it’s time for a visit, hint hint), the next available Thomas had to step up to the plate to blow out the candles on his behalf. It’s just like when Hugh Jackman wins a Logie, but he’s way too busy and important to attend such a trivial event, so some unknown rookie accepts it for him instead. So, the next Thomas down the line that was available for a candle blowing just happened to be me, and I was happy to accept the responsibility.

Dad managed to get both candles out in a single breath (by proxy, of course), and then thoroughly enjoyed the slice of buttercup golden with chocolate (with a dash of vanilla ice-cream, of course) that followed.

Happy Birthday, Dad!
