As MM pointed out it rained on my birthday last year too. Last year he and I went to Plymouth MA and attended a ghost tour of haunted Plymouth, including the spooky old Burial Hill. I know MM didn't enjoy himself because he really isn't into all that spooky kind of stuff, but he played along because it was my birthday and he knew I would enjoy it. In fact, he was a very good sport and he kept the eye rolling to a minimum. When our tour guide channeled the Plymouth witch in the graveyard, I would even swear he was mildly enjoying it!!
We stayed at the John Carver Inn which I could feel was loaded with spirits before we could even make it to our hotel room. Walking down the long narrow, dimly lit corridor I felt a heavy sensation pressing in all around me. I asked MM if he felt it, but he didn't know what I was talking about.
Later that evening while learning the haunted history of the town, we discovered the history of the hotel. It used to be a medical university. The story goes that some very sinister medical experiments took place there. And when the Civil War ended and the supply of bodies to experiment on fell short, the professors started robbing freshly buried bodies from the graveyard out back to use as their practice subjects!! Yikes!!
Anyways although MM and I are not currently living under the same roof we did spend some time together yesterday - and I got to see that sweet, tender side of him that reminded me why I fell in love with him in the first place.
Then one of my friends took me out to see my first Burlesque show! IT WAS AWESOME!!! The rest of my birthday will be told through a series of photos...
