A (sort of) birthday



On this day, a long time ago, in a country far, far away (where they eat those delicious Galaxy bars), I decided to stay 29.
Now, obviously, I understand time doesn’t really work like that. The unused birthday had to go somewhere, otherwise it would just be silly, which is why I gave it my oldest brother. I’ve done the same thing every year since.   

So here’s to you, Michael. By my reckoning, you’re 80 years old today, and looking well on it.

As for me, I’m staying 29.

Giving your birthdays to your sibling is a great idea! Wish I'd thought of it years ago: I have 7 elder siblings and 2 younger. Think how I could have spread the birthdays around and they'd hardly notice.

Lol, I have four brothers and two sisters :)

Happy Birthday to your brother, who I trust is wearing well — and I wish you an excellent day also.

I wish I could do the same thing, but it wouldn't be fair to my nephews and niece. I'll just have to keep grasping for youth the old fashioned way of pumping iron.

Lying about your age is so much less effort than exercise ;)
