Sunday morning I was cleaning up / throwing out junk, and come across an old birthday candle. It plays (beeps rather) happy birthday when it gets warm from the lit candle. Pulling the candle off the base, I snapped some sort of sensor prompting it to belt out happy birthday one more time. Figuring its now broken and has no ‘on’ mechanism, I throw it in the kitchen garbage.

Late last night, Tiffany was rudely awakened by a loud beeping rendition of happy birthday. While she was unaware of what it was or unable to find it anywhere in the kitchen, it proceeded to serenade the house for an hour! (I didn’t hear it)

The moral of the story: don’t throw beeping things in the garbage unless you take it out of the house.

If we were to name our baby Henry or Henrietta*, would we call the process of getting ready for baby’s arrival “Preparation H” ?

*Note: these names are not actually on our short list.
