A Post That Is Only Written Once In 4 Years …

So today is Feb 29th.

A day that only comes once every 4 years.

A day allegedly ‘invented’ by Julius Caesar, 2000 years ago.

A day where women supposedly have the right to ask a man to marry them.

In short, it’s a special day … a day we should not take for granted, especially if you’re someone called Darren Perkins because it means today, you have reached a big age … an age of double figures.

That’s right, my friend Darren turns 10 today … though it has to be said, he doesn’t look very good for it because if you saw him, you’d swear he looked 40.

So Happy 10th/40th birthday mate … even though your parents lied when they said being born on Feb 29 meant you were ‘extra special’, the fact is you’re an OK man and I hope you have a good day, especially as it has to last you 4 years till you get to enjoy the next one.

The way you’ve been acting for the past few years Rob shows 40 is the new 10.

I’ll take that as a compliment even though I know you mean the absolute opposite.

Happy birthday Darren. There cannot be many 10 year olds with a wife and 2 children who are both older than you. Congratulations.

Pretty common in Nottingham. So is becoming an old Dad, isn’t it Rob?

Sadly you’re right. Well, not exactly right … but I remember when I was 14, 3 girls at school got pregnant – 2 by the same guy. Who then got the sister of one of them pregnant a few months later. He was literally run out of town.

Comment by Rob

If I could only celebrate my birthday once every 4 years, I would want a really good present from my family.

Comment by Pete

That’s where you’re going wrong Pete, you should expect a good present every birthday.

Comment by Rob

Now that is a name I have not heard for a long time. Please pass on my best wishes to him Robert.

What an honour. Hello Lee.

Comment by Darren Perkins
