First Birthday Card

It’s approximately 12 days before my 33rd birthday and I’ve already gotten my first birthday card. It’s from Harrah’s Casino so it doesn’t really count; but I’m somewhat touched. Oh sure, it’s a marketing ploy but no other business in recent times has tried to woo me so heavily. I went there one day last fall with my best guy friend so he could win a $100 for signing me up and ever since then, they’ve been sending me information and promotional offers non stop. Little do they know that they’re wasting their time since I’m not a gambler. My best guy friend was the one who played using my card. When it comes to gambling I’m definitely not a high roller. On the rare occasion that I find myself in a casino, I’m on the nickel slots.

  1. I didn’t know you were a Leo. No wonder we get along so well. Happy birthday!
    I’m going to spend my birthday planting my white ass firmly on a Samoan beach. What are you planning?

  2. QVC sends me 4 or 5 greeting cards every year – birthday, Xmas, Thanksgiving, springtime and summer. All the hosts sign them ,even Murphy the Q dog. I reward them with my patronage.

  3. …and in 3-7 days you’ll be receiving your first birthday *present*… ::mischievous grin::

  4. Happy Birthday. I hear what you’re saying regarding gambling. I gamble once in a blue moon. I figure by playing nickel slots, I’ll lose my money a little slower.

  5. Andrew,
    Yup, I’m a leo all right. Here’s wishing you a happy 33rd birthday. Enjoy your time at the beach on Monday (August 4th). If the weather is nice, I too will be spend my birthday at the beach. Then my friends are taking me to dinner!!!
