You Say It's Your Birthday

It's my birthday too, yeah
They say it's your birthday

We're gonna have a good time

I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you

Don't you love when a politician remembers your birthday then sends you a card with their picture on it?

I do.

Yesterday I received this birthday card from 33rd District State Senator and Union City Mayor Brian Stack and boy, was I excited!

He doesn't know me from a hole in the wall yet was thinking about me on my birthday! Which was in June.

Some of my so-called friends didn't wish me "happy birthday" this year-- never mind spending cash from dubious sources to buy a birthday card for me or "current resident" sent via bulk mail.Not like State Senator Stack, who wants nothing from me at ALL. But my happiness.

It's personal... but I'll let you read his private musings:

He wished me happiness in 2 languages! And signed my name on the blank line!

I'm touched.

Yet our Senator's a pragmatist; he knows there's no reason to waste a good birthday card if I'm dead, been evicted, deported or foreclosed on, arrested or moved away, so also extends his heartfelt happy birthday wishes to "CURRENT RESIDENT".

Dear State Senator Stack,

Maybe you can tuck a little birthday check in next year's card, like my Grandma and aunts used to do?


  1. LOL

    I thought that I was the only one who thought that those cards were a ridiculous waste of time adn insulting. But now, instead of losing a gasket, I will smile and remember your witty and entertaining post.

  2. WOODMAN, spare that tree!
    Touch not a single bough!
    In youth it sheltered me,
    And I'll protect it now.
    'Twas my forefather's hand
    That placed it near his cot;
    There, woodman, let it stand,
    Thy axe shall harm it not!
