A reason for celebration

I share a birthday  with His Majesty the 4th King of Bhutan, at least on paper, because like many of my peers, parents of our generation who were mostly uneducated, didn't write down the exact date of birth. We share a private joke that our parents scratched on the date of birth on pots and pans, but ultimately erased on the next wash (not the clean pots now in household with available gas range or electric stoves, but the pots from wood fed stoves). So there, a birthday bestowed upon me by my wise teacher, a reasoning that I would always remember it every November 11th, our King's birthday. Happy birthday Your Majesty, and thank you for the day.
