Many, many happy returns

It is perversely pleasing

to wake up on one's birthday

(when one is well into middle age)

to discover incontrovertible proof of youth

upon one's chin.

(a pimple)

  1. Birthday felicitations and all that!

    I just knew someone as fabulous as you must have been born this time of year! All the best people are, you know.

    I have a small birthday pimple too, perhaps we can pretend it is the fashion.
