Listen in, listen Ian!
I've had to turn down invitations to four different birthday events next
Saturday, because my parents are coming to visit for the weekend. Now, next
Saturday is February 24. Nine months - to the day! - before that
is May 24. Or, as it's also known, my birthday. All these celebrants are
younger than me. I'm not saying that this spontaneous outbreak of being
born has anything to do with the extravagant nature of the celebrations of
the infant me's birthday, and I haven't checked the wider figures to see if
this is a true phenomenon or simlpy a side effect of small sample size but,
well, it's a bit of a coincidence isn't it?

It's when all the best things happen!

I don't think I know any of my cousins' birthdays.

Are you saying you're like their dad or something?

I hate to be the person to do this, but generally pregnancy is 40 weeks, that's about 10 months, not nine. Sorry.

It would be if all the months were the length of February but they're not.
40 weeks = 280 days
280 / 30.417 (average days per month) = 9.205 months.
Nearer to 9 than 10.

I'm going to a birthday party on 24 Feb - do you know someone who used to make stage outfits for The Grateful Dead?

So, which part of "All these celebrants are younger than me." did you misunderstand? I doubt any of them were born when the Grateful Dead were still around.

Am I older than you? I can't even remember. Anyway, if I am, invite me to stuff where you don't want to be the youngest. If you're not, invite me anyway so I can point and laugh at you for being the oldest.
