Is it your birthday? I KNOW BECAUSE I AM PSYCHIC.
Is it not your birthday? Yes it is. You are wrong. Because I SUCK at remembering birthdays and have even forgotten my own so I decided that today is everyone’s birthday. If you want to go up a year you are a year older. If you want to go down 10 years that’s fine too. These are the rules of Universal Birthday Day.
And what do you get for your birthday? You get something lovely and it’s entirely up to you what that thing is. Go take a hot bath and listen to true crime podcasts. Go buy a bunch of facial masks and oils and give yourself a spa day. Go buy that thing you’ve been wanting but haven’t been able to justify. Sit in the grass and read an amazing book. Binge-watch Doctor Who. Go to the movies. Call the person who makes you laugh. Forgive yourself for that thing you’ve been feeling bad about. Dress your pets up in costumes and have a small parade. Snuggle with rescue animals at a no-kill shelter. Have a pillow fight. Learn a new hobby. Eat an ice cream cake. Go to the library. Pull out the slip-and-slide. Have a whipped cream fight. Take a nap with your pets. DO WHATEVER YOU WANT BECAUSE IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY!
And that means it’s my birthday too so I am going to finish this post and then give away presents because that makes me happy. So leave me a comment telling me what wonderful thing you’re going to do for yourself for your birthday and I’ll randomly email some of you gift certificates for books or bath bombs or whatever strange thing makes your heart sing.
Happy birthday, y’all.
And on an entirely different subject, it’s time for the Sunday wrap-up!
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- Me in 7th grade vs. my kid in 7th grade.
- Be careful out there.
- Bookmark this. The best thread to combat all the bullshit out there.
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by StoryWorth Books, which I’m actually a huge fan of and have bought for both of my parents. From them: Still looking for a meaningful Father’s Day gift? StoryWorth is the perfect last minute gift. Each week, we’ll email him a question about his life – asking him about his favorite memory of his grandparents, or whether he’s ever pulled any great pranks. All he has to do is reply with a story, which is forwarded to you and any other family members you invite. At the end of the year, his stories are bound in a beautiful keepsake book your family will cherish!” You should check it out here.
