Happy birthday

He's never happy with any photo taken of him.

I rarely get a word in edgewise, and when I do, he's listening to the voices in his head so I don't know why I bother saying anything.

He doesn't cook anything.

He has no patience.

On any given night, he will tell the same story thirty times until he's got it perfectly tuned.

All the same, we love him lots.

Head over there and wish him a happy birthday.

I'm a firm opponent of early birthday wishes unless I know there is no way to contact the party on the given day.

Joe's wishes will have to wait until the turn of the clock.

Hey Father went to your site, read about Joe's Birthday. Wished him well if it's today we share the same day. Hope all is well at bear hill Central Park New York.

Mark said...

But those are all the reasons I love him.

I actually knew without your prompting (don't ask why or how I know it, I can't remember any but my closest relatives' and friends' birthdays otherwise), but it did convince me to send him a message.

As for David's point, I *think* it was half past midnight over there when I sent them, it was an ungodly 6.30AM over here...

I have your essay on friends on my desk as I type. Words to live by.
