How to give your wife a happy birthday

Cartoon of a sick woman asking a man to sign a contract

Cartoon of an ill woman with a contract. She says to a man, “Please sign this agreement that you will never again bake me a birthday cake.”

Maybe it’s the thought that counts, but if you know you’re a lousy baker, let the professionals do the work. After all, you will need to eat the cake too!

Leap Day Choices

O why must birthday cake be designed so that it is not wise to eat the whole thing? I guess it’s because birthdays are meant to be shared with other people. You learn real quick in life to share some things or the choices will come back to haunt you.

it must be hard to have a birthday on February 29. But it could be fun too. Wouldn’t it be nice to live forty-eight years, yet only be twelve years old? The only hard part would be waiting for birthday cake every four years.

Birthday Stress

Cartoon of two babies. One says, “€œMy first birthday is next week. Talk about pressure!”

There are lots of birthdays in my family this time of year. I don’t know how we planned multiple generations to have summer birthdays, but I’ll take them. I much rather eat ice cream with my cake in the summer instead of the dead of winter. No pressure for you winter birthday people. I’ll eat the ice cream in January too, if prodded.
