[Interviewer] What was your favorite birthday?
00:01
Not age, but a particular birthday that was memorable?
00:05
Oh, gosh.
00:07
Uh...
00:14
I've had a lot of memorable birthdays,
00:16
(Lynn laughs)
00:17
except I never remember them
00:18
because I like experiences.
00:21
And, in general, I don't really like birthday parties so
00:23
I always try to leave town.
00:25
So I go places, and I've been lots of places on my birthday.
00:28
I've been to Cuba on my birthday.
00:30
I've been to, y'know, San Francisco.
00:32
I've been to Paris on my birthday.
00:35
I've gone sailing.
00:36
Y'know, I try to have an experience.
00:39
I think my 50th was pretty fun.
00:41
I was all by myself with my dog in a hotel room hiking.
00:46
And, I don't know why, that was an awfully good one.
00:49
It shouldn't be, right?
00:50
That sounds bad, but it was, that was a good one.
00:53
[Lynn] Sounds good to me.
00:54
I spend every birthday with my dog so.

Yeah.
