Portrait Of A Good Sport

Would you wear a big hat with colorful flaming felt candles on top and "Happy Birthday - Older Than Dirt" emblazoned on the front? In a restaurant? Where the average patron and all the tattooed wait staff were in their 20s? (Our waiter snickered at my bong joke). And keep it on the whole meal through? All the way to the silly little cake decorated with Roman numeral candles?

If not (and I know I wouldn't!), you're not as good a sport as our pal Jack, who not only wore the hat with aplomb but also mugged for the camera shamelessly.

Happy Birthday, Jack. You are living, breathing proof that growing older and growing up are two entirely different things. Please don't ever change.

Your BONG joke? And you're not sharing it?

Looks like Jack was a happy birthday boy: good for him.

Oh, and you neglected to mention from whom the hat was gifted?

Kudzu, it was just a throwaway line but it cracked him up.

Janie, nothing is truer than, "What goes around, comes around!" :-)

Nope I would not - I won't wear those paper hats that come out of xmas crackers either - I'm a spoil sport :)

Ms Mouse, like you, I fear "hat hair" but I do wear the paper hats at Christmas.
