By Matthew Cole Scott Posted on February 4, 2020 Share Tweet Share Share Email Comments On my 40th birthday, I was volunteering on the Thai/Burmese border at a refugee camp. I woke up with the sun rising, and I realized how incredibly lucky I was to be born the way and the place that I was. When my girlfriend orchestrated a surprise party with 15 of my friends behind my back. Me and several friends kidnapped a friend and took him to the Giants/A’s game. We threw a bag over his head and grabbed him. My daughter got tickets for all of us, her friends and my friends, to go to see Moe live in concert. For my 50th birthday, I bought myself a set of Cornishware teapot and mugs that reminded me of a set we had as kids.
