Vice President Biden wished me Happy Birthday this morning.

VP Joe Biden wished me Happy Birthday

Today is my 39th birthday and about 9:30 am, my phone rang. It was my mom's number so I answered and she said, "It's Mom, hang on." Then she handed the phone to the VP of the United States to wish me a Happy Birthday.

My mom, Annette Rodrigues, a government contractor, was invited yesterday to attend the Inaugural breakfast reception with President Obama and the First Lady this morning. She lives and works in California so she had to get on a red eye out of San Jose in order to attend. At the end of the event, she went through the reception line and met the President, the FIrst Lady, Vice President Biden, and Jill Biden. As she was in line, she scribbled on a napkin, "Happy Birthday, Diana" and when she reached the VP, she asked to take a picture with the napkin so she could send it to me.

The Vice President told her to "Get her on the line so I can wish her a Happy Birthday" And so, my first birthday phone call, today, came from the Vice President of the United States. A very good start to the day!
