On birthdays

I recently learned that today is unzeugmatic's jubilee birthday. Today also happens to be the birthday of one of my sisters.

I've only ever met one person who was born on exactly the same day as me (one of my 80 high school classmates), but I've met several who were born on the same day in different years, including the daughter of Glenn and Faith (mutual friends of unzeugmatic and me) who is now 15.

The Sacred Harp Minutes Book, published each year with the minutes of many annual All Day Singings and Conventions, includes a section listing the birthdays of many Sacred Harp singers. I have not submitted my own birthday for publication in that list, but the last time I checked there were at least two people in the list who share my birthday. One of them is a certain young lady named Anna who is, I believe, a friend of unzeugmatic and the daughter of other friends of his.

I always enjoy discovering new connections with people whom I already know...
