Incidentally, it’s my grandmother’s birthday today. And my mom’s birthday tomorrow.

Also, today is New Year’s Eve.

But holidays are less important.

Today, I turn twenty years old.

Now, we all know that a year is the amount of time it takes for the earth to travel around the sun, and the earth is 93 million miles (on average) from the sun.

So, what does that mean for me?

Well, that means that in the last year, the earth has traveled 584,336,224 miles around the sun.

During my lifetime, it has traveled 11,686,724,472 miles.

I’m not just twenty years old. I’m eleven billion, six hundred eighty six million, seven hundred twenty-four thousand, four hundred seventy two miles old.

That doesn’t make me feel big. That just makes me feel very small.

I still have a sneaking suspicion that Axolotl Ceviche isn’t a real blog, because I haven’t posted any cat pictures.

Happy half-birthday, Axolotl Ceviche. You, and my few readers, have brought me far more amusement than I had ever expected you would.

…happy birthday, Dad.
