I am curious- how did this get started?

Something I was writing about in my novel tag. ;)

I officially (and unofficially and formally and informally) feel like an idiot.

*hugs* no reason to feel like an idiot. You've just had different experiences :)

Or perhaps I cannot even remember what it is like to be at a children's birthday party. Yet I think I can write about children? Yeesh!!!

This is obviously all your mother's fault. :-P Where is she? She needs to vote!

Well, the only other person who said "after" was my cousin, so either my family or my people do it that way, or she is just feeling sorry for me. ;)

Maybe it's a florida thing? Or a jewish thing? Or a Melissas-maiden-name's-family thing? I am very interested in how this came about!

It's not a Florida thing. I doubt it's a Jewish thing, but it could be a family or tradition thing. Or I'm betting that it's just my cousin feeling sorry for me, though. I wonder if she will come back here and look at this again?

Maybe if we talk about her loud enough, she will come back!

Perhaps her ears are ringing right now! I wish you could hear her voice, too, because she has the best accent. Of course, you probably have heard a Brooklyn-Jersey accent before, so perhaps it is moot.

lol
I did hear that you were talking about me over here...
I don't know why we do it after but I do know that it's a debate every time there's a birthday which way is right...and my Mom and Grandma say after so we go with after.

Also...I don't think my accent is the best AT ALL.

So, in summary, this is all dates back to Grandma, and possibly even further back to the Old Country?

Yes. In conclusion, this is how we did it in the Old Country.

I am so sorry that you are weird. :-( :-P :-D

Well, unless the Ick's are from the Old Country, I think you might want to consider changing it - it's a minor detail that is kind of distracting.

Actually, I changed it about 100 comments ago, as soon as I could see that I come from something extremely different from the norm. :D

Yah know, I thought that was an exaggeration, but it probably isn't! :-P I should pay more attention.
sillyliss
Oct. 23rd, 2008 07:07 pm (UTC)
Haha, I don't think it is an exaggeration either if you add up the comments on your most recent entry and my most recent entry!

YAY comments! :-D Livejournal was certainly quite when you were gone.

I'm pretty sure that didn't have anything to do with me! I'll pretend it did, though. La la la... :P

Hey, that's what research is for! And proofreaders. :)

Actually, I do find it extremely helpful getting all this feedback. It was a great idea for me. Plus it encourages me to look at and focus more on my writing.

I am so glad you decided to put yourself (and your work) out there and share it with us. I think it is a fun process for all!
