They did this on the day I was born, and apparently every year since. It has become something of a tradition.
For the life of me, I cannot figure out the cause for this phenomenon. To my knowledge, I am not Hispanic, and no oracle has ever declared me to be “El Uno.” But as I’ve said before, when life gives you a gift, you don’t ask why; you just embrace it.
So thank you again to the Mexican people for making my birthday so special every year.
