A message I left last night:
Hi X. It’s me. It’s 11:30 my time so it’s 8:30 where you are. I just wanted to call and wish you a Happy Birthday! I hope you’re out having fun! Wait…it is the 29th, isn’t it? Oh wow. Well, if it isn’t the 29th, then I really need the weekend to start. If it is, then happy birthday! Give me a call back when you get the chance.
I check my phone. It’s not the 29th. It’s the 28th. 20 seconds later.
Hi X. It’s your sister again. I’m such a noobster. I just checked and it’s the 28th. Let’s pretend that I called you 30 minutes from now. I hope you like your gift! Happy Birthday!
And now that it is officially January 29th on both the east coast and the west coast, I’d like to send a big shout out to my brother X and wish him a very happy birthday! I took a suggestion from @notaprilbrooks and got him this great gift for photogs:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY X!
