Happy 99th Birthday Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser ♥ October 20, 1918

    He didn’t move for a second. But then he looked down and smiled faintly at me. “Happy birthday, Sassenach,” he said.
    It took me completely by surprise and I just stared stupidly at him for a moment. “What?” I managed at last.
    “I said ‘Happy birthday’. It’s the twentieth of October today.”

Me: I love my son.

Person: You have a son?

Me: Yes, he’s the most precious boy, I love him with all my heart.

Person: Aw, how nice! How old is he?

Me: *sighs dreamily* He’ll be 19 this month.

Person: …..wait aren’t you 22?

Me: *tears up* He’s grown so fast! Here, I have a photo! Look how perfect he is!

Person: ….that’s a cartoon.

Me: *gasps in outrage* HOW DARE YOU, THAT’S MY SON, KEITH, MY BEAUTIFUL BOY, THE APPLE OF MY EYE –

🎈🎉it’s my birthday!🎉🎈

And I’d love a rec for a song that means a lot to you, and (if you feel like telling me) why! I’ve done this for the last couple of years and wow you guys have great taste in music. It makes me really happy listening to them knowing they’re important to someone out there.

Love you all! ❤️
