Dead-tree birthday cards are the BEST

Aside from bills, I don't receive a lot of snail mail these days.

I mostly receive wedding invitations or save-the-dates for weddings. I guess I am at that age. I also receive the occasional "Happy (fill-in-the-blank)" cards from the dentist reminding me to schedule an appointment. Classic.

I received a dead-tree birthday card in the mail yesterday. Yes, a REAL birthday card, addressed to me and providing a time and location. Wow! The information was even handwritten. I was shocked because it'd been so long since I received a birthday invitation -- not an Evite, a real invitation.

To compensate for the birthday girl's good work, Amanda and I definitely have plans to make her party next Friday.
