I don’t care what you all say. I’m eating the pounds of shrimp my sister gave me for my birthday. If I’m not back in 3 hours, send help.

And by help, I mean cocktail sauce.

LV, homie, by all means accept my slightly belated but heartfelt congrats on your birthday, and my best wishes. May it usher in another year of top-notch folds. And you must be in great shape, if you can afford to put on several shrimp pounds in a matter of hours, with sauce on top of it.

LV’s birthday was February 22, that’s why he’s worried about the state of his shrimp. Mine was this week! I had a carryout Mex meal complete with takeout Margarita. It was great!

You should have told us it was your birthday, Woab; we could have had a cyberspace celebration.  Anyway, Happy Birthday in quarantine.

I always suspected I had a birth day. Never bought the emerging from my father’s head story. Sounded too Minervan. I never would have suspected it was February 22 though. They didn’t have those around when I would have been presumably born. Back then the days were so few that they still had their own names. I also thought that if I had to be born, I would have liked to be have been born on Clive Smidgeon’s Day.

Clive Smidgeon might have a different view on the matter.



I’m just saying.

Thank you, Jimbeau and Clive. (Weren’t they gangsters or something?) It would be cool if this site had a chat room or forum.

We do have the cumbersome Message system. But that requires each party be following the other. Plus it would be limited to just the two.

We could probably incorporate something like Google Groups. Looking at the bottom of this page, I guess we could use Facebook or Twitter some how.

I joined the Folding Story Facebook page a while back but usually just favorite stories wind up there. It would be a good excuse for some banter.

BTW, I did a reading of this story just now:

Noice, Kiefer. Is that how you really sound?

14 KieferSkunk's photo

Yep. That’s my voice, echo, sniffles and all. :)

Dude, you should totally do audio books.

Thanks. :)  I don’t really have the endurance, though - my voice fails pretty quick (throat clogs up, etc.), and more to the point, I don’t have the time. My wife does audiobooks periodically, though. :)

Look at you two complementing each other :) !
