Boxer Girl and I were chatting yesterday. She's going to a friend's 40th birthday party this weekend. Eighty people will be in attendance. Eighty?!
"Yeah," said Boxer Girl, "I'll probably have about eighty at my 40th, maybe closer to a hundred."
I checked my address book. Okay, so I've just added New Girl - yes, things have progressed that far - and that takes me up to 45 entries. Three quarters of the 45 live either interstate or overseas. I couldn't imagine them wanting to travel for my 40th.
Good thing our house only holds about a dozen people.
