It was my birthday earlier this week (35…again) and I noticed, thanks to Twitter, that I shared my birthday with a few famous people.
Given the fact that there are only 365 days in a year, it’s not surprising to discover that you share your birth date with someone in the public eye or historically famous.
Through I was quite pleased with some of the names that my rapid online research revealed:
- Alan Rickman
- Ellen Page
- Nina Simone!
I was enjoying this research on my way back from a business trip to Barcelona – not how I’d ideally spend my birthday, even at my age – when another name popped upon the screen of my iPhone: Robert Mugabe.Oh.
So yeah. You can’t control who you share a birthday with. But there’s no need for me to ever mention it again, right?
