Although my birthday isn't until tomorrow, I'm technically 600.03 months old right now, thanks to leap years. If anyone asks my age tomorrow, as people often do when they know it's your SPECIAL DAY, I will hold up both hands, palms out, and say, "THIS many!" and open and close my hands 60 times. But for today, I'll just stick to saying, "Gee whiz, I'm 18,262 days old!" as I fiddle with the bottom of my pinafore and swing my shoulders to and fro, the toes of my black patent maryjanes turned inward, and try not to suck my thumb.
