Seis de Mayo - Winky

An Open Letter to My Birthday...

Birthday, why did you pick May 6, the day after Cinco de Mayo? Don't you know that inspires the practical jokers? Or was that your devious plan all along..... I really don't appreciate that, Birthday.... I just wanted you to know...

Yes, another unwanted birthday has hunted me down. My co-workers and so-called "friends" decided to honor my over-the-hill status with some of the following things:

First, a sombrero hat to be worn while opening my "gifts."
(Wow, now I feel really special)

A card from the gang with the following message:

Happy Birthday! You're Forty-Five?
Damn, you got old!
It's a wonder you're still alive!

Along with such gifts as:

1 lone bottle of Corona (leftover from one of yesterday's six packs)
garnished with a half-eaten lime
(gee, thanks guys)

Half an order of soggy Nachos (leftover of course...yeah, it was lunch time -- YUCK)

And.....last but not least...
One single Marraca (because they lost the other one yesterday at their party)

Thanks guys, you REALLY shouldn't have.... I really mean that...
You know what they say about paybacks..... you've provided me with the perfect tool to annoy you with for the upcoming year...

Ya know.....with friends like these, it's no wonder I'd rather blog...

WT,

Congratulations on yet another ring on the tree. It sounds like your co-workers truly know how to throw a party (not for your birthday). As to your age, 45 seems pretty young to me.

I'm not sure I even remember my 45th birthday. Of course, I'm not really sure that I remember yesterday all that well.

Thanks, Tim... I guess how you feel about ages is all relative. I've never been this old before!! ;)
