I used to have a lot of traffic to my blog looking for Oprah Winfrey’s birthday. Since I switched blogging platforms and deleted the old blog, I rarely get traffic looking for Oprah.
People came to read this post from 2006, January 29 to be exact, when I wrote about Oprah’s birthday.
Today is Oprah Winfrey’s birthday (1954). I guess I should wish her a happy birthday, since my oldest daughter thinks that Oprah has been a better mother to her than I have been. She told me this yesterday, as I was standing my ground about the cleanliness of her bedroom.
Oprah is a better mother because, “she knows what she is talking about.” I don’t know anything these days.. afterall, I am the meanest mom in the universe….having that title takes away brain cells, you know.
I guess oldest daughter missed the Frey incident on Oprah’s show this past week. (pretend I’ve inserted an eye-rolling smiley face here) I wonder if seeing Oprah lambast an author that she previously publicly supported would change her view of her surrogate/pretend mom. It has tarnished my view a bit, I have to say. But this isn’t about that really, is it?
I didn’t mention to oldest daughter that Oprah wouldn’t put up with a messy bedroom or backtalk & that perhaps the reason Oprah didn’t have children was to avoid having children with messy bedrooms & smart mouths.
Oldest daughter has since apologized. I just found it ironic that she said that yesterday & today is Oprah’s birthday.
I was looking at the search queries that bring people to my site and thought about the days of Oprah searches. I used to crack up about it because I’m definitely not an Oprah expert or anything.
Anyway, Happy 54 years + 7 months day, Oprah!
