The Day After Your Birthday


The day after your birthday, 
 you look in the mirror to see: 
 a) you've got a zit from eating all that cake; 
 b) your love handles have expanded a half inch; 
 c) you singed your eyebrows blowing out the candles.
The day after your birthday, 
 a) you require six extra hours of sleep; 
 b) you can't find your living room under the birthday debris; 
 c) you wonder how you could possibly have done THAT.
The day after your birthday, it's time to: 
 a) return some gifts (what IS that, anyway?): 
 b) call your friends and apologize for yesterday; 
 c) get out of the country, fast.
The day after your birthday...
 we should all look so great
 and have it so good!
Happy Birthday! 
 Appreciate yourself and your life!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
