You know, the problem isn’t that I forget birthdays.

The problem is that I remember them too early.

Bear with me, here. I am, admittedly, horrible at remembering birthdays on time. What seems to happen is that about 3 weeks from said birthday I think to myself “self, your mom’s birthday is in three weeks” and I reply to myself “self – well its still a bit early for a card, but perhaps I should write it on the calendar”

And then I forget.

So I’m at dinner with my friend today and a text comes through on my phone from my sister:

See? I’m not the only one (sorry for throwing you under the bus sis….haha)

Believe this or not, Food Lion has some pretty funny cards.

After stopping at the store for the card I called and got her voicemail. I was going to just leave the traditional message, but instead hung up and decided to get creative. Then a couple minutes later I called back and left this cool birthday song: (sung to the tune of “Happy Birthday”)

Happy Birthday to You

Bet you thought I Forgot you

Good thing Natalie texted me an hour ago!

Happy Birthday to you!

Your card is in the mail…….tomorrow……
