For many of you party revelers today is only significant as an opportunity to drink beer and eat enchiladas as you celebrate Cinco De Mayo but add another momentous occasion to your calendar. On this very day, my oldest daughter Sunbum officially turns 11.
Sunbum enjoys the esteemed honor of being the only member of the Infidel household who gets her birth date remembered by Papi. When asked the other kids birthdays, Papi hem-haws around and never gets it right. So lucky for Sunbum to be born on a day like Cinco De Mayo that Papi can easily add to his diverse and eclectic memory. Not only that, she was born on 05-05-95 which is pretty neat to say out loud. Last year on her tenth birthday it fell on 05-05-05. God willing, when she turns 60, the date will read 05-05-55. Ahhh, something to look forward to. Too bad we don't play the lottery because five is her lucky number for sure.
