If there is reason to celebrate I will be the first one to pour the drinks and light the candles. Christmas, Halloween, Mother's Day, Boxing Day, Take your daughter to work day, all of 'em. So for me, birthdays are always a goodtime...no matter how old you are. That's why I take advantage of the entire week and possibly month when it's my birthday. And of course, with last night being the first time to rejoice for the birthing, I've already collected a promotional product.
My friends thought I was gross for picking a custom imprinted shirt off of the sidewalk down at the Nautical Mile in Freeport, but it was in fresh-out the box condition and this job has given me a fetish for all things promotional. The shirt says something cheesy like, "I got this shirt on the Blue Boat!" I'll wear it to bed.
What else will my birthday have in store for me? The weather reports say a nice big thunderstorm. That works for me. I'll just whip out my Motivators promotional umbrella.
I received two cards so far. One has two teddy bears on the front and says, "It's your 3rd Birthday!" and the other, from Marisa darling, is an elegant Hallmark that reads, "Celebrating your 80 Years." Good jokes my friends.
In a really lame kind of way I'm pretty excited about my birthday cake. But I don't want to eat it because it's going to look so darn wonderful. My younger sister, Julie works at Friendly's and is making me some sort of ridiculous cake. She's cut shapes out, made mermaids, built jungles and color coordinated cupcake tower cakes. So tonight...the possibilities are endless. Could it be fashioned with custom flash drives? Or will it me a giant edible custom tote bag? Perhaps.
When we were younger, Julie and I would battle and bicker every now and again. She'd pinch me and chase me around the house with the vacuum. For some reason I was scared of her. So this cake I found might be the one she's creating for me right now. Who knows!
