In 37 days.....

.....I will be celebrating my 37th birthday. It's a good age. I'm in a good place right now - dare I say happy? Blissfully happy? Perfectly happy? No silly. Of course not. (unless there's a full bottle of Vignoles with my name on it, which sounds like a fine idea, actually....) Life does manage to test my patience, faith, and strength of character. I'm just managing to pass those tests easier nowadays.

I remember a random question from a Stealing Sunday post long, long ago. It asked what I might want for my next birthday. The appeal of getting "things" for my birthday faded with my ability to afford them myself. What I really cherish is the unexpected card in the mail, the inevitable phone calls from my mom and dad singing Happy Birthday in my ear, and even simple email wishes from friends. And that's how I responded to the question. So that's what I want.

I want to hear from you. My blogging cohorts. Friends. I visit your blogs, I read your words, and I've come to recognize your written voice, but so often wondered how that voice would sound in conversation. Sound is a powerful thing, as I've come to understand. So if you're brave and up to the challenge, make a girl's day by sending her a birthday wish. Sweet words, dirty jokes, and musical renderings are all acceptable. Or maybe dirty words and a sweet joke? Even better!  ;)  I would love to hear from you. And I'm willing to reciprocate to show my appreciation. If you've ever wondered what Freya sounds like, I'm making it very easy to find out.  :) My email contact is now in my profile. You've got 37 days. I dare you........

A friend of mine sent me a voice clip this morning, just a little hello, and it was a powerful elixir for what ails me. I like this challenge. 37 days to think about it though, it may bet a little long.

For you on your birthday, 37 days to prepare, count on me to make you something special.

I agree "sound", if done right, can be the ultimate turn on.

What a clever idea! 28 days until my birthday. I guess I should think about a wish list myself.

Max said...

Very clever.... :-)

V said...

This sounds like a fun challenge! Do you plan to listen to them in private or share them with the rest of your readers in a future post?

Freya said...

Yay! It sounds like my challenge has been well received - and accepted, too.

V brought up a very important point. For the recored, these are my birthday wishes, for my ears only. ;)

Hope you get lots and lots of presents!
