It’s my mommy’s birthday tomorrow, or is it? I have been confused for the good part of my life.
See my mom was born back when my grandparents did not speak any Russian, they only spoke Yiddish and Romanian languages. A few years after my mom’s birth that part of the world became Soviet Union – Russia, and my grandparents had to learn how to speak a brand new language. Not only that, they had to translate all their important documents into this brand new language.
My grandpa was in charge of this project, because my grandma had more important things to do!!! He went to a “city
hall” and with the help of a translator, whose Russian was maybe a bit better than my papa’s translated all the papers and guess what…. the words June and July sounds very similar in Russia and few years after my mom’s real birthday her new date of birth was June 7th!
While the family continued celebrating her birthday on her real date, every document stated the opposite, plus I get totally confused with her Horoscope signs sometimes she acts like a Gemini Personality and sometimes she is a total Cancer!!! O’ boy!!!
Now my mother-in-law is a totally different case. Her real
birthday is on July 30th and guess what I only found about
it few years ago, all her documents are saying December 26th. What?!?!?!!?
After coming home from WWII evacuation all of their
documents were lost and her mom did not have the time to
pay attention to details, while restoring her daughter’s birth certificate. My father-in-law is still complaining that she cheated him by 6 months. He thought he was getting a “young girl”, but actually she was 6 months older 🙂 Keep in mind they are together for almost 60 years and he still teases her about it.
Again, what about all the Zodiac signs – she is definitely not a Leo, even though her birthday says she is! I believe they are tricking me with their personalities.
Is this possible? Do you think Zodiac sings have anything to do with our personalities? I read somewhere that our personalities are 33% of our genes, 33% of where we live (if this is true then my personality is totally different from when I lived in Russia) and 33% of positions of the stars, when we were born.
Oh, almost forgot, Happy Birthday MOM!!!! , wait a minute we celebrated it a month ago :).
