I bet you're thinking that I've suddenly lost my knack for spelling. No. Not yet, anyway.
"Hapy Berth-day," is what I saw spelled out in Legos on the countertop at my mother-in-law's house. It was her 70th birthday, and her Lego-loving six-year-old grandsons decided to create this memorable birthday greeting.
As we all chowed down on cake, I couldn't help but think that "Berth-day" might actually be a very appropriate thing to call the day. After all, doesn't it seem that we need a little extra "berth" after eating cake?
