Odds of 1:365 (or 1:366) are by no means insurmountable odds, but it is sort of spooky how many friends and family members of mine have the same birthday. It’s also pretty wild how many have birthdays in February. Here are some of the synchro-birthdays I know of (fill me in if you know more):
- 19 January: Trev and my Dad (paging Dr. Freud…)
- 20 February: Aunt Carol, my cousin Casey
- 26 February: Trev’s Dad
- 21 September: My older brother Dave, my younger sister Cathy
There are a few more upcoming dates that could make Bean a birthday-mate of a family member as well:
- 27 February: My aunt Annie (“Anma”)
- 28 February: Trev’s Mum
- 1 March: My grandmother Genevieve
- 3 March: My cousin Tom
My birthday, Nov.1, isn’t shared with anyone in the family (my oldest cousin Frank comes close as he’s a Halloween baby), but some folks I know in St. Louis share it. I have an ex-boyfriend who was born on Christmas Eve like my grandfather, and another friend with a June 10th birthday like my Mom.
Anyone want to submit revised bets for Bean’s birthdate? I am guessing it will be April 2011, the way things are going.
I am a horrible niece. Annie, I fixed your birthday. Thanks, Cathy.
