A unique date screening strategy

I must say, I am happy that April 28th has come and gone. That date is a like a mini-landmine for me. Why? Well, it happens to be the birthday of the 2 significant boyfriends I've had. Whose names are Brian and Ryan. Isn't it weird that my 2 significant boyfriends have had similar names & the same birthday?

Every time April 28th rolls around each year, I always seem to take a little walk down memory lane.

I think about the cake I baked for Brian for his 17th birthday. Oh, who am I kidding. I think of the cake my mom baked for Brian... which I passed off as something I made, when all I really did was stand in the kitchen, twiddling my thumbs, wondering when I was going to take over from my mom...

I think about the date I planned for Ryan. We got dressed up and went downtown to one of my favorite restaurants for dinner. The picture we took that night ended up in the family Christmas Card.

I don't get sad on the 28th... I just sort of roll my eyes at the date and will it to pass by swiftly.

And I vow to NEVER, EVER date a guy with a birthday of April 28th. Seriously. Obviously I'm not compatible with people born on this date.

So every time I do go on a date, I somehow work the, 'so... when is your birthday?' question into the conversation. And guess what - one of the guys I went on a date with this spring was born on 4/28...

So seriously, God, stop sending Tauruses my way. It's time for me to date a guy that was born on a different day of the year!

Hmm..what are the chances? That's kind of funny, in strange day. Maybe it's because I've had some sort of terrible relationships, and I've managed to block them out, but I don't actually remember any of my ex-boyfriend's birthdays, except for N.

April 23rd (St George's Day) always made me think of my ex, whose birthday was that day. But now it will always be the day I found out I was having a daughter :)
