Today. My birthday. Or, as I call it, just another day. Let’s face it, my only birthday wish will not come true today, if ever. Beyond this, as much as I’d like to kick back and relax, taking full advantage of the inherent laziness that comes with one’s birthday, it’s just not possible. Ryan needs my attention. He will get it.
What I do like about my birthday is it (hopefully) reminds people to check in on Ryan. Yes, that, and I like people telling me to have a happy birthday as much as the next guy.
Oh, and it it gives me a legitimate excuse for proudly wearing my birthday suit! Granted, it’s no less offensive to others and they might bellyache about it… but not quite as forcefully. Then there’s the law that seems to have an adverse stance against it that I’ll need to consider. Women don’t seem to like it either. Men seem a bit be more tolerant. To hell with social norms, I’m going “all out” if the opportunity presents itself.
Fair warning… that’s not a noisemaker!
So, thank you for remembering me today as my 49th year on this earth is acknowledged. Even though I will do absolutely nothing differently, it does mean a hell-of-a-lot to me that people are thinking of me; and by extension, Ryan. As much as people (myself included) like to play off their birthday, don’t we all secretly want to be remembered and receive the well wishes?
Several have asked me if there’s anything they can do for me today. The answer is yes, they most certainly can. It’s simple, really… Keep Ryan relevant. Here a just a few ways you can make this happen.
