Georges Le Soq turns 44

This morning my stuffed sock monkey Georges Le Soq is like
"ees today mon ami" and I am like "Georges, you're up already? You always sleep in!!"
and Georges is like "NO. I no go to bed last night."
"really?"
"oui" says Georges, "ees your and my, how you say BESTDAY" and I am like
"well, close, it is a BESTday, but we would say BIRTHDAY" and he is like
"as I said, BESTDAY. I want cookies mon ami, and I vant to blow candles" and I am like
"44 candles on a little cookie? I don't think so. You can have ONE, but I want a PINEAPPLE for my birthday! A REAL ONE!!!!!!" and Georges looks at me funny and he is like
"fork that, ees k!nky you crazee Americaan"



Of course, when talking about real pineapples, I am reminded of Elizabeth Hurley in Austin Powers....OH MY.....

Happy belated birthday Gary. We were the same age for 2 days. Love the video clip. Powers was my maiden name.
