Birthday good things!

Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday, dear Brian.
Happy Birthday to you!

I could have said, "You smell like a monkey and you look like one to!' but that would not have been a very good thing to say to a dear friend on his birthday.

I also cannot make fun of how old Brian is today because I'm seven months and four days older than him.

I can, however, note three good things about having a birthday.

Starting with a quote from the birthday boy himself:

1. "Never forget Sue, birthdays are good for you. The more you have the longer you live." A very good thing indeed.

2. Dessert. Usually a birthday cake, but I do know that Brian prefers pie. If he didn't live in another time zone, I would treat him to a slice of pie in honor of his special day. And maybe a cup of coffee, too. I've served cake, ice cream, pie, giant cookies, and even cream puffs for birthday treats. A birthday dessert is a good thing no matter what your preference, no?

3. Presents. As a kid, a birthday present is a must-have. As an adult, perhaps a present is not as important. However, it's still a good thing especially when it's thoughtful, unique, and something you would not normally buy for yourself.

Very much like this post . . . which, by the way Brian, is your gift. Enjoy!
