Thank you everyone.

I wish people a happy birthday on Facebook.

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.
