Hello and happy birthday to us!
If you too are born in the perineum of no man’s land that stretches from Christmas to New Years I salute you and recognize your struggle. But today is going to be different because today is now your birthday too and if you are reading this my birthday wish is for you to do something really lovely for yourself or someone else today.
Go out for pie, watch your favorite movie, buy that thing you’ve been thinking about, take a lovely long bath, bring donuts to a friend and re-watch your favorite movie, go snuggle animals at the shelter, rob a bank, go to the park, whatever makes you happy.
And then when someone says “Why are you doing all this nice stuff for yourself” you can say, “FUCK YOU, ASSHOLE. I DESERVE IT.” Or you can just say, “It’s a birthday gift…because I’m a good friend“.
Happy birthday, us!
