Today, I was born

At least that's what my birth certificate states. Or it used to.

For years, my mother had my original birth certificate carefully wrapped in cellophane and kept in her jewelery box. She let me take charge of it when I turned 30. It promptly burned up in a house fire 3 years later.


It was hand writen and the official crimped state seal was all crumbly. No wonder it went up in flames, it was practically kindling.

To date, I have yet to order a replacement. Eventually I will. I have to. If we're ever to go overseas for holiday, I need to get a passport. And to get one of those you need a birth certificate. So, I'll order it.
