I’ve been around the sun 27 times. That’s a long way to travel.
It’s always been my favourite way to wish people happy birthday to remind them that they’ve travelled all the way around a star again. It puts birthdays in a cosmic perspective. It simultaneously makes me feel insignificant and as if I’ve achieved something. Both can be true at the same time I think.
I should make some birthday cards to that effect. Also, probably ones thanking my mother. She’s cool.
