Meet Ptolemy Jherimanicus. He was a scribe in the Temple of Isis and a part-time cosmetologist. It's a little-known fact that that same chemicals that produced his luxurious curls were used in the process of mummification. Which explains a lot.

Today we celebrate my stepmother "Pat" (not her "real" name) and her 88th or 90th birthday.
If you are out there sweetie, I send you all the love you have bestowed upon me.
You know years ago she
Moi? Wish bad on you? You a woman who chose a chocolate wedding cake? However could you think that of me?
Moi? Wish bad on you? You, the woman who used to brag about your sexual prowess with my father in front of me? Why would I wish you imprisoned by the hounds of Hell for making an old man with a bad heart happy in bed?
Moi? Wish bad on you? You, the woman who called my mother a bitch in front of a whole room full of people, including a Rabbi?
Moi? Wish bad on you?
It simply isn't in my genetic make up. I'm not you.
So I will send you the same birthday wish that I have sent you for the past 20+ years:
Pat, may you to live a long, long, long life. I'd like to see you be in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the oldest person alive. Willard SCott telling everyone in the United States that you are 100 seems like a dream to me - and you can reach that dream if you just take care of yourself.
May the sun shine in your eyes everyday. May you have sweet wonderful dreams, knowing that they next day, and then another and another, etc., await you. And don't worry about outliving your money. You don't need money when people love you as you do. That's why there is Medicaid!
And I certainly don't want that precious and precocious mind of yours to get anything that would cloud your vision or understanding. So, may your mind never turn to dust. I want you to enjoy every day - every long, long day.
I want nothing but the very best for you.
Because that's how much you mean to me.

Remember, beauty operators - if a coiffure is simply unsalvageable, wrap it up and drape some beads on it. You can tell the biggest old battleaxe in the place she looks just like Sophia Loren and she'll leave happy.
(But when you do it, please don't use the shampoo towels - we're running out!)
