Not only do Bryann and I share the same interests, but we also share the same birthday. We also both enjoy Italian food, so we celebrated at Olive Garden this year and last year.

Olive Garden, August 20th, 2010
Although, this year, when they brought out the decadent chocolate cake list with two candles, there was no singing or clapping. Our waiter brought it out quietly to us and informed us of the new rule:
No singing to the customers.
Know what we did?
We sang anyway AND clapped the familiar song anyway!!
...went something like this:
"Bona Festa what a joyous day
Bona Festa ....da ta da ta da..
sit back, relax, have fun. da dun (the Italian wayyy)
We're so glad you came to us to celebrate today"
The words were jumbled because we were so used to having it presented to us by the Olive Garden singers, but the tune and rhythm were right on par. Funny, that we both instantaneously decided to sing and clap for ourselves in celebration of our lives together.
"And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count.
It's the life in your years."
