MCMLIV (or 1954)

If you were born in 1954, you are the bomb. For proof, this is the hydrogen bomb test that year on Bikini Atoll.

From bomb, to bombshell. This is the dream girl the year you were born.

In 1954, our Marilyn Monroe took a ride to the head of the class, where she was a stand-out.

Although coming out a year earlier in December, Playboy is close enough to claim as our own.

With bomb shells and no bikinis, Playboy also carried the great writers of the day.

This man won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.

“Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.” Ernest Hemingway
From hot bombs to end-game poppers, 1954 set the table for the rest of time.
Make sure it’s a good time for more than you.
Party on.

    Another way to crow about your birth year, you shameless hussy. I do like Hemminway’s quote.

      Who knew 1954 would be such a turning point in world history. For example, if I remember this right, the Guatamalan government turned pro-American in 1954 with some American help. Six years earlier, heard this on NPR, America infected 1000 Guatamalans with a bunch of social diseases like syphylis. Five of the 1000 are still alive and seeking compensation.

      The findings so far include a 1948 agreement to not infect any more people. Then boom, 1954. Heavy metal.

      Speaking of gunshots, I have a poster of Hemingway holding a beer and looking pretty beat up. It’s a favorite. Reminds me of last night and a new birthday tradition: you have to wear all the presents somehow. Found a new shirt in the driveway this morning.
