Dear Johnny,

On behalf of the whole family, I want to wish you the happiest of birthdays on this … your FIFTIETH birthday. I am truly floored. You still don’t look a day older than Benny & Joon to me. Which is now an astonishing 20 years old! (We still need to make that sequel we keep threatening to make, by the way. LOL!)

Anyway, I just wanted to remind you about your party. As requested, we’re keeping things small with only the short list of friends we talked about last month. Ooh, and I found somebody to make that Caribbean Pineapple Upside Down Cake you mentioned. She’s a good friend of mine from school. It sounds amazing and it should complement the “Happy Birthday, Mon!” island theme you finally selected. (Yes, I know. “No surprises, Michele! And this time, I MEAN it!” Blah, blah, blah. Whatever, J.)

Please don’t forget to bring your guitar. I’ll have mine, too, so we can play that duet we used perform together in college. But don’t laugh! I haven’t kept up my playing as well as you have. And I fully expect to suck. But that’s sort of what makes it funny, remember? I mean … as long as we’re both wearing the Rastafarian wigs and all. And I forgot to tell you … Dave got his hands on an old karaoke machine. The kids are going to be so pumped. Tell Lily-Rose that Viv wants to sing Wicked with her. But this time in ENGLISH! 🙂

Have a great day with the kids at the church picnic this afternoon. Sorry it had to fall on your birthday. But we’ll make it up for it in Neil Diamond impersonations tonight! (HAHAHA!)

Can’t wait,


P.S. I’m wearing the red shoes you sent me from Madrid. You were right. They match my sundress perfectly. Thanks!

  1. Wait just a minute! Red shoes?!? Like…Ketchup Red shoes by Prada? 🙂

  2. My God, I didn’t realize that I am almost as old as a mustang…thanks for reminding me!

  3. I turned 50 last year, I didn’t know I was in such good company. I feel better now.

  4. I’m a little frightened here – I thought your personal relationship with Johnny was blog fodder.
    Truly, you’re hanging out in some rarefied air!

  5. Will you please let Johnny know I’ll be a little late. And this time can you please save me a piece of cake? Thanks!

  6. Diet Pepsi being 50 surprised me.

  7. It’s a little disconcerting to realize that Johnny Depp is 50 years old. He’ll probably show up on the cover of my AARP maazine magazine soon 🙂 ~TALU~

  8. All I’m saying is that at 47, I’m used to being the oldest mom at school and THANK GOD someone is older than me — even if it’s just a wee bit. Happy belated to you and of course Johnny!

  9. How did you find all of this! Brilliant! In a few short years, I will be just as old as these ten items. I am not worried though because I love Johnny Depp and don’t mind being his age, as long as I look as good!
