Today is my favorite day of the year. It’s my birthday.
I hear people gripe about their birthdays because they don’t like getting old. I’m the same. I’m not going to offer words of wisdom about how getting older is a gift and a privilege. Getting old kind of sucks. My body is falling apart and I’m only 27.
But! This is the one day of the year that my incurable narcissism is socially acceptable and all my friends feed into it. I love it.
Thank you to everyone for your kind words, cards, Facebook messages and texts. I appreciate you all very much.
Love, Uncle Benjamin
