HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Best Friend From High School (and basically forever)! Since we had to endure the most cliched comments on the most cliched birthday (that would be the Sweet Sixteenth), I thought I would step outside the metaphorical Birthday Gift Box and present her with this Not A Birthday Card card.
In fact, this card is probably more appropriate for her to get me, as I would be the crazy one. This is called either
1) narcissism (my buying her a card that is actually all about me)
2) projection (my buying her a card that is actually about me).
I'll have to go with Door #1 as #2 would be a better fit if I really believed she was the crazy one. I think I just bought the card because it was funny and now that I really think about it, I remember why.
But wait...(dramatic pause!), this girl did stay up all night with me, just to see if we could do it (we did, it was hard, but not as hard as the following two days), and that's NOT ALL, we actually bought a chocolate cream pie and ate the whole thing on the way back to school during track practice, you can see, we were really livin' on the edge!

These things, however, in no way qualify her to be crazy. They do, however, qualify her to be my Best Friend From High School and Basically Forever.
