Thank You

Thank you for the birthday cake (it tasted like my socks).
Thank you for the birthday gift (at least I liked the box).
Thank you for the birthday song (you yelled into my ear).
Thank you for the birthday punch (left over from last year).
Thank you, Mom, and thank you, Dad, and thank you, Brother Ben.
I’ll thank you now for never ever doing this again!
