Friday Wisdom – Birthdays

Well it’s birthday month in our house so here we go:

To avoid getting heartburn when eating birthday cake, remove the candles before eating.

People who have the most birthdays live the longest.

I once went to Moby Dick’s birthday – it was a whale of a party.

A true friend is one who remembers you birthday, but not your age.

You should put candles on the top of a birthday cake – it’s really difficult to put them on the bottom.

Birthdays are great, but too many can be fatal.

You know you’re getting older when you start sentences with, “Back in my day …”

You know you’re getting older when the candles cost more than the cake.

How old were you when they started bringing out a fire extinguisher with the cake?

One more birthday, one year closer to monthly social security checks.

This week I turned 29, again.

So when does this, “Old enough to know better” kicks in?

My birthday cake was hard as a rock. Well, it was a marble cake.
