Happy birthday, Tom Darby!


Every year on April 5, I make a point of mentioning that it’s Tom Darby’s birthday. Inevitably, I’m asked who Tom Darby is, to which I respond that he’s just some guy I went to school with.

I never get tired of doing this.

(Plus, it’s very easy to then lead the conversation around to how I always remember his birthday because it’s three days before my own, so it’s a good way of reminding people to get their last-minute birthday present shopping done.)
