I often buy myself presents. Sometimes I will spend $100,000 in one day in a posh boutique.
I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn’t have one. So I got a cake.
I’m amazed. When I was 40, I thought I’d never make 50. And at 50 I thought the frosting on the cake would be 60. At 60, I was still going strong and enjoying everything.
I remember when the candle shop burned down. Everyone stood around singing ‘Happy Birthday.’
I think, at a child’s birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.
