Birthday Pea Planting Delayed

People like to plant peas on my birthday, not because it's my birthday, but because it's St. Patrick's Day. This year, due to conditions beyond our control, that planting will have to be delayed, putting in jeopardy all the good luck that comes with March 17. Since St. Patrick's Day cannot be extended, the least I can do is to extend my birthday indefinitely until the ground is sufficiently thawed, in order to bestow some residual measure of good luck upon this year's pea crop.



Thus far today, I've received birthday greetings from Google (I'm assuming that others' Google.com page doesn't look like this), a dental service I no longer use, and, oh, my dear friend who plants her peas on St. Patricks Day.
