My birthday party

That man’s so way off hot he makes me cry! Wants us all to sing There’s a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, as if Belafonte was the latest kid on the block. Not I! Then suggests Waltzing Matilda in the presence of some real Australians. Oh should he blush.

With this fifty-word birthday “story,” I wish everyone a Happy 2008 as the year is approaching its birthday.
