Thanks mates. Actually, being the awkward bugger that I am, I actually have two birthdays; just like the queen ( and that's definitely where any similarity ends! ) I have an actual and an official birthday. My mother grunted and swore on at 4am on Sunday 21st October 1951 as my twin and I ( he, sadly deceased ) were born in a missionary mud hut in the Nigerian bush. Several days later as they carted us off, bumping along sand and mud track roads to the nearest town, Benin City I believe, to get us registered, the registrar recorded my birth as the 22nd October 1951. My mother protested to no avail, women held very little sway in those days and the registrar refused to re-issue an accurate birth certificate.


I have celebrated every 21st October since - didn't actually know it was recorded as 22nd until I was about 12. I asked my mother if she might have made a mistake. Should have known better. She NEVER makes mistakes, and, as she pointed out, using the vernacular in no uncertain terms, "I was F****** there, I should know what day it was!!!"


So there you have it. And, definitely to my advantage, I now enjoy my official and actual birthdays back to back. At some point about three days later I sober up.

Oh! That's good to know, so I don't need to send you a 'belated' greeting on the 22nd in future?

So, I guess you could also represent Nigeria in Olympic or other games? Handy for a man of your athletic prowess!  cmu:-)
