Having some fun!

12-12-12


If you are from Wisconsin, you may have heard on the news that December 12, 2012 will be Aaron Rodgers day in Wisconsin. For non football fans...Aaron Rodgers is the Green Bay Packers quarterback and he is number 12.
Well, 12-12 happens to be my birthday! I decided to have some fun with this. The boys were slowly waking up this morning and I told them "I got a call from the Green Bay Packers this morning. They needed to know if I was okay with Aaron Rodgers sharing my birthday. They wanted to have it be Aaron Rodgers Day in Wisconsin. I explained it really is Carla TePaske day, but I guess for this special year  I would let it slide." 
Now remember my boys just woke up...they do not drink coffee, so we have to wait for a little bit. My little guy said to me " Mom did they call the other people with 12-12 birthdays" 

I had to keep a straight face! This was not easy...nor was coming up with an answer. (I could have said " Well, I am the only 12-12 birthday in Wisconsin")  I said " Yes, I think they did, I did not ask"

 Now my older son is starting to wake up and  said " Mom, the Packers did not call you, how would they know to call you?"
 I can no longer hold a straight face. They got me.



Tax dollars at work?

Have a great day!

  1. VERY FUN!!! Personally, I wouldn't have known who Aaron Rodgers was if you hadn't told me...but I DID know who Carla TePaske is. So I'm sure the date was chosen because of YOUR birthday first! Makes sense to me. :-)
