Student Question: How Old Are You?

How Old Are You? That depends on when we meet. You’ll need to do the math. My birthdate was June 28, 1971. I was born in Princeton, Kentucky, a small Western Kentucky town. My parents names are Mary and Larry Adams and they lived in Dawson Springs, Kentucky at that time.

Since my birthday was in June, birthday parties consisted mainly of family. Most years I’d wish my birthday was during the school year so my friends could attend. My favorite thing about birthdays was and is cake—white cake with butter cream frosting!

On my 21st birthday, my mother made me a 21 layer birthday cake. She did the same for my father and this has become a family tradition for all my siblings.
