Some days I win at getting cards out on time. When I don't, I try to be funny.

I bought cards for the May birthdays in my immediate family back in April and had them stamped, addressed and penciled "mail by [one week before birthday]" on the envelopes so I got them out on time, but Himself's birthday slipped my memory until last week.

Laurel and I picked out a belated birthday card on Saturday, but I didn't get it out in the mail today. Since I had the extra time, I decided to make up somewhat for the lateness by sticking a five-dollar bill in his card and wrote "Here's a little something to celebrate with. Don't spend it all on hookers and blow." I figure he'll either laugh or ignore it.
