Sometimes I don’t know them. Sometimes it’s not a very smart, clever, or original greeting – just the standard “Happy birthday!”, and nothing more.
No matter how much people don’t want a big deal made about their birthday, they do want to know that someone remembered. That someone cared enough to bother to say something.
Because there’s a huge damn difference between “not a big deal” and “nothing”.
Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday today.
