I’m the eldest of 6 kids. My mom’s last pregnancy was twins – girl and boy. Geez!!!
About 15 years ago or so, the female twin started sending me hysterical birthday cards. Absolutely hysterical. Herare are some of my favorites:
Cover: Sketch of a snarky cat wearing a birthday hat. The cat is saying: “Don’t worry just because it’s your BIRTHDAY and I’m YOUNGER than you! Who cares? I guess what I’m trying to say is…”
Inside: “Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah.”
Cover: Snapshot, 2 women chatting over coffee. Once says “Where’s your birthday party at?” The other responds “Don’t end a sentence with a preposition.”
Inside: The 1st woman responds: “Where’s your birthday part at, bitch.” And the caption says :”Hope your birthday is a one big party.”
Cover: Sketch of a woman with big glasses, big earrings, high-heeled shoes. And she says, “I have just one word of advice as these birthdays keep pilin’ up on ya’, honey…”
Cover: Sketch of a very grumpy cat with a birthday party hat on. “Happy Birthday. Or Whatever. Now make yourself useful and feed me.”
Inside: Just a handwritten note from my sister.
Cover: “Oooh, it’s your birthday.” (With a stack of pancakes + birthday calendar below.)
Inside: “Big deal. I’ve had plenty of birthdays.”
And a silly one from a silly friend:
Cover: Drawing of the Eiffel tower with a ribbon wrapped around it … and a little sign that says “Happy Birthday.” The the text: For your birthday, we bought you the Eiffel tower! Then, in your name, we donated it back to the French! They love you France now!
Inside: Vive You!
Okey dokey. No more playing! Get back to work!!!
