Happy Birthday, JM — this is a big one! Not the big one but *a* big one!February 13, 2009 at 6:07 pm #658031
First let me say thank you to all who’ve left a message.
Some one however is not at all pleased about becoming “a teenager because everybody thinks teenagers are stupid and now everybody thinks I’m stupid because I’m a teenager…”
I’ll spare you the rest as that rant started here at the house and lasted the whole ride down to Fry’s in Renton yesterday afternoon.
But you probably get the idea.
He’s 13 and that’s our little secret – K?February 13, 2009 at 6:10 pm #658032
turning 13 doesn’t make you stupid…
believing it’s stupid to think makes you stupid.
Happy b-day to a young man who is unlikely to buy that story.February 13, 2009 at 8:13 pm #658033
Hey its your magical year. You are 13 on the 13th. Look at the up side you are one year closer to getting your drivers license. Happy Birthday and have a great day.February 13, 2009 at 8:14 pm #658034
I will not tell a soul you are a teenager, if that is how you wanna’ play it. No worries from this corner of WS.
But I’m still going to say Happy Birthday. We will just let them wonder, eh? And I’m still going to say thank you for helping make WSB such an important part of so many people’s lives.
BTW, I’m a huge fan of your micro-mini short film style which you debuted during the snow storm. Especially memorable was the fabulous 360 panoramic framing of falling snowflakes back lit by street lamps! Such genius, it made me dizzy!

I, too, thought it would have been best to go straight from 12 to 33. No such luck.
And just because some teens get a case of the stupids doesn’t mean you’ll get it, too. Put on that invisible prophylactic that will let stupid slide off of ya’ like water off a duck.February 13, 2009 at 8:44 pm #658037
13 and 13 …an auspicious day, for sure. You, stupid? Couldn’t possibly ever be. Just keep being you and have a wonderful celebration today..
HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!February 13, 2009 at 11:07 pm #658038
One word I would *never* use to describe JMOT is “stupid” – anybody who would isn’t worth worrying about.February 14, 2009 at 12:13 am #658039February 14, 2009 at 1:28 am #658040February 14, 2009 at 4:42 am #658041
Happy Birthday, and welcome to one of the most confusing stages of your life!!!
But, don’t worry it’s not nearly all bad – late twenties can be a killer too.February 14, 2009 at 4:46 am #658042February 14, 2009 at 9:14 am #658043
Thanks again to all for the kind wishes.
Re: going from 12 to 33 … Funny thing is, he was really born old. My mother (who only lived until he was 3) looked at him when he was hours old and said, “He’s got an old soul.” He has never been much at being “a kid” and I just keep telling him to hang in there a few more years, official adulthood is finally in sight.February 14, 2009 at 7:31 pm #658044
Hey, stupid is as stupid does. That applies to any stage in life and we all have a pretty generous bank of mistakes to draw from before it qualifies as “stupid” ;)
Hope your day was a good one, JMOT!February 15, 2009 at 1:35 am #658045
I have extensive evidence that many humans experience brain melting at age 13, so I can understand the frustration of being lumped in with that population. However I also firmly believe that it is important to embrace the 13 year old that is living inside all of us so that we can occasionally enjoy the lighter things in life, like fart jokes. Tell him to take advantage of the stereotype when he wants to be silly and when he wants to have fun smashing people’s narrow ideas of what teens are capable of. Happy birthday!
