When we were deciding when to have our baby we flipped a coin. Heads the baby would be born in December and tails the baby would be born in July. If you think about it those are really the only two months that make sense for a birthday. My birthday is in October which makes perfect sense if you're me, but would make no sense for Corky Jr or anybody else for that matter.
I've touched on this a little bit before, but here's why July makes perfect sense for Corky Jr's birthday: The new Year for me has always started in September. This year in particular on September 6th. Football season. Then in October I turn 37 on October 22nd. Also, October is the second month of Football season. Next comes November, and that means Thanksgiving. It's also known as the third month of Football season around these parts. The fourth month on my calender is December. December=Charlie Brown Christmas specials, and the final month of the regular football season.
January is a big fucking deal around here and pretty much used to be the most important month of the year for us! The 5th month of my year starts off with Allyson's birthday on the 4th. Every weekend is consumed by playoff football and our wedding anniversary is on the 10th. Most of my lottery numbers come from this month, obviously.
The final month of my year starts in February, and the Super Bowl is basically my New Years eve party. I pretty much have a hangover that lasts from Super Bowl day night until September. At least that's how shit used to be.
From here on out my year will start in July. Not sure of the exact date as of yet, but next year on my calender there will be a grand celebration in July, with fireworks, birthday cake, and crazy fucking sales at malls. I'm also going to have figure out a way to work August back into my life, and I know most of you are thinking, preseason football. Preseason football drives me nuts. It's such a dirty tease. But I do love to draft for my fantasy football teams in August. So August will now be known as fantasy month around here. It won't really exist, but it will. Now do you people understand?
