Past Blasts: Woo's Bad Luck Birthdays

Steven spent his 31st birthday ripping out windows for new ones to be installed the next day. The plumbers were also here working their magic, and the kids had a melt down before dinner.

Steven has a history of bad birthdays, so relatively speaking, I think it went pretty well. The plumbers cut a hole right in the middle of his office without asking (after he'd tried so hard to preserve the wood floors there). That was a huge disappointment, but the thought of finally having a bidet seems to get him through most days.

This week was Woo's birthday. Unfortunately for Woo, pretty much everything has gone wrong for him today. As far as I can tell, this seems to be typical.

My favorite "worst" birthday is the one where he walked straight into a pole, and then a few hours later stepped on a piping hot oven rack with his bare feet. Did I mention that he put the oven rack there himself? Just minutes before stepping on it?

Really this whole week has been a bad week for him. We both renewed our drivers' licenses. I'll spare you the gory details, but yes, it did include multiple trips to the DMV, long lines and swears.

Hopefully, Penelope's birth broke Woo's bad luck birthday streak. How about you guys? Have any of you ever had just nightmare birthdays? Or even a couple in a row?
