My first birthday card came today! I'm so excited! It's from my insurance agent. I wonder how he knew I was such a big fan of Dalmations! And red pick-up trucks! And distant rolling hills! It shall be displayed with prominence on my refrigerator. Come to think of it, fuck that! This baby needs to be framed!
The front of the card (which is actually a postcard) reads "Wherever the next year takes you..." and the back reads, "Enjoy the ride." Wow. Poignant. Then, in computer-generated faux-handwriting it reads "Have a great birthday!" and is auto-signed by my agent's printer.
I may not have much time for blogging during the next few days. Most of my time will be spent holding back tears of joy and gratitude as I compose a perfectly-worded, heartfelt thank-you note to my agent for his lovely card.
