Another year under my belt. Maybe the saying should be ‘Another wrinkle in the collection’?
Is it just me or has social media completely changed the landscape for birthdays? People who would normally never bother posting on your FB wall?
Does that mean they really care or they just feel obligated or it’s a case of monkey-see monkey-do? (Gotta hope they really care!!)
So the tally for this year is….drumroll please….
TWO actual handwritten cards!
ONE actual phone call! (Mom always comes through)
TWO Text messages!
Seventy-One Facebook posts!
I suppose someone has already come out with an app that you can turn on to auto-post on someone’s timeline for their birthday – you know, sort of a set it and forget it app? Sorta takes the fun out of it!
I really do dearly appreciate everyone who reached out (in whatever way they chose) to say happy birthday! And for my 11 year old daughter who conspired with the waiter at Chili’s to sing to me….”I’ll get you my pretty!”
