When I was little I used to enforce 'birthday week'. No mere day was enough for me to be able to fully celebrate my grand entrance into this world (I was the youngest, and maybe - just maybe, a tad spoiled).
My family went along with it (for the most part), and I was afforded all sorts of privileges. Like, I didn't have to help with the dishes if I had a paper cut. Or, I got to go first in line at the waterslide. Or, Mom would spring for tickets to a movie I wanted to see even though it would "rot my brain".
In the grand tradition of my youthful exuberance, this is my birthday week! I was born August 5, 19-*cough*.
What's the best gift someone could get me this year? Easy. Just buy a copy of Talking to the Dead!
For those of you in BC, House of James is featuring Talking to the Dead as their Book of the Month for August. Visit them in August, pick up a copy of Talking, and browse their store. I hear it is one of the best Christian stores in Canada!
I bid you good writing.
