Has it been that long?

Waking up this morning, the milliner turns to me and says, “Happy birthday, honey.” Still groggy, I make a quick calculation in my mind and think, wait, we’re not already in March, are we? Because, wow, that was a long sleep. I might be late for work. After a delay, I realise that, hey, it’s December 13.
Wow, 11 years later. I amaze myself sometimes. Top of the world, ma! Top of the world!

    ‘When a man’s an empty kettle
    He should be on his mettle
    And yet I’m torn apart
    Just because I’m presumin’
    That I could be kind of human
    If I only had a heart

    I’d be tender, I’d be gentle
    And awful sentimental
    Regarding love and art
    I’d be friends with the sparrows
    And the boy that shoots the arrows
    If I only had a heart

    Picture me a balcony
    Above a voice sings low
    Wherefore art thou, Romeo?
    I hear a beat, how sweet!

    Just to register emotion, jealousy, devotion
    And really feel the part
    I could stay young and chipper
    And I’d lock it with a zipper
    If I only had a heart’

    I’m so glad the great OZ granted your wish.

    You googled the lyrics, didn’t you?
    Man, I can never remember the last chorus. I got to work on that.

    google this!

    What rolls down stairs alone or in pairs
    Rolls over your neighbor’s dog?
    What’s great for a snack and fits on your back?
    It’s Log, Log, Log!

    It’s Log, Log, it’s big, it’s heavy, it’s wood.
    It’s Log, Log, it’s better than bad, it’s good!
    Everyone wants a log! You’re gonna love it, Log!
    Come on and get your log! Everyone needs a Log!

    log, from blam-o.
    happy bday!
