Birthday greetings

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tom @ 7:02 pm

Yep, it’s once again birthday time at work, and today’s taxed me a bit – there wasn’t much to comment on or poke fun at on the card itself, so I simply got creative and let those ex-creative writing major juices flow:

The card features a guy in a sequine-bedecked leotard, with the text “So, you will not go to Omaha with Paco? Paco can show you many things, but Paco will not beg.” My birthday note: “He ran from her years ago when she told him of her fear of swapmeets, but now Paco is ready to accept her flaws. He knows she’s there, in Omaha, with her geese, and when he finds her, he will make her pancakes on his portable griddle. Happy birthday!”

  2. I doubt I’m the one you’re looking for, Mira, but for the record my middle name is Carter. Good luck.

  3. thanks! the tj is so common but his middle name is so unusual that it’s the only defining way to look. i appreciate it.

  4. It’s easy to tell which TJ is which. How many TJs do you know that create such clever and creative card greetings?
