So, today’s my birthday. I’m so excited!
About a year ago, I was having a conversation with a girl from church. I had recently found out that we have the same birthday, and we were connecting over the greatness of summer birthdays growing up. I made the comment that I was born on Father’s Day, and she said, “hey, me too!” That’s when I realized that we didn’t just have the same birthday; we had the exact same birthday.
That got me to thinking who else might have the exact same birthday (meaning born the same day, month and year as me). A little bit of recent research showed that I share an exact birthday with rapper Ben Haggerty (Macklemore) and Irish actor Aiden Turner (he was in the Hobbit and the BBC version of Being Human). It’s absolutely fascinating to think that we have each had the exact same amount of time on this earth, and how different each one of our lives is.
So, in honor of my (and his) birthday, I leave you with my favorite Macklemore song. I can’t help dancing to this, and I hope you enjoy it as well. Maybe I should watch the Hobbit too, you know, to spend some time with my other birthday twin, Aiden.
