b. 1980

"Welcome to my birthday"

Hi, hey. Thanks for visiting my birthday. Or I don't know, maybe you were born in 1980 too. It doesn't matter either way to me, I just wanted to welcome you. No need to get bogged down in the details.

It seems like it just keeps happening. My birthday, I mean. At this point, it must have happened at least 20 or 30 times. Conservatively maybe two or three times a year. I've tried all kinds of stuff to slow it down, like getting up early, or drinking coffee, or drinking beer. It's unstoppable.

Anyway, that's not your problem. Your problem is how you're going to get from wherever you are to the Twisted Spoke at 8:30 on Tuesday August 7. I mean PM. Don't go there in the morning—it's a bummer at that time. If you need help finding that place, try this link. That'll help you.

Let's face it: everyone wants more money. So look, that's the reason why we're going to the Spoke, because it turns out that on Tuesdays, you can get a beer for $2.50. That's in US dollars, so already you know it's going to be a great deal.

But look, listen, their food has no deal, so if you want to maximize that beer deal, eat a PB&J before you come out, and invest the savings. Honestly, that's the one benefit to having more birthdays: pretty much every time around, you get more "pro tips." I love pro tips. But you know what? If you want to treat yourself, get food there—it's really up to you.

Well, thanks a lot for stopping by my birthday, and I hope to see you for the drinking thing too. Sorry my birthday has so many words in it, but I had a lot of information to get across, like the time, and the place, and the pro tips. Anyhow, if you can't make it this time, don't sweat it—maybe I'll see you at my next birthday in a few months.

Sincerely thanks,
