Overheard at Table 2: Birthday Month

Dad: So you're going to Miami Beach?  The whole week?

Daughter: Yeah.  It's Spring Break, and it's also for my birthday.

Mom: Didn't you just go to Austin with your friends for your birthday?

Daughter: That was last week.  For my birthday LAST week.  Miami is for my birthday THIS week.

Dad: It's called a birthDAY, not a birthMONTH.

Daughter: Well, I have to celebrate it all month.

Mom: Oh my God, mija, why?!

Daughter: Oh don't get that way, guys, it's just one month out of the year.

Dad: Making it one-TWELFTH of your LIFE!

Daughter: Well ... I just have to, OK.  Because well ... it's for ME.  Call it "self-care".

Dad: I think you've mastered the art of self-care.  Total mastery.
