my friend edith turned 100 today. she is hilarious. and kind of feisty. i kept pointing out the fact that she is now 100 (because really, how often does that happen?) and she kept pointing out the fact that she is now older than dirt. during her birthday dinner, she paused to sing us the star spangled banner. just because she loves living in america. she told lots of stories, the most memorable being the one about how when she was younger she was given the nickname picklepuss at work...because there was also another edith that worked at the casket making company and it was too confusing. true story.
so happy birthday edith...you're definitely a special one.
