Most people have no problem with this, however, I tend to panic!
I'm talking about Birthday Cards... picking the right message is beyond painful to me. I mean, they're either too mushy, too stupid or too plain! It can take me 30 minutes to pick out a birthday card for one of my sisters! And here's part of the problem... I didn't grow up with some of them... they were already out of the house by the time I came along... and my brothers? 20 and 15 years older and no, not your typical brother/sister relationship. So... those cards that talk about growing up together? Didn't happen!
So, I spend precious time in the card aisle... pouring over card after card after card... and once I find a card that's halfway appropriate? It costs as much as a gift! What is up with $10 greeting cards?!!! Let me take you to lunch instead!
Yep... I have another sister with a birthday next week... she's 22 years older than me... has always lived in another state... and now I have to find ANOTHER just right message! I think I'll just write my own... and send her the money!
