While out shopping for a birthday card for SD14, it occurred to me that they are missing a whole market.
To the hormone riddled teenage girl in my life,
Despite the fact you've been nasty, sullen and hateful, I do wish you a Happy Birthday. I often lie on the couch and look at you upside down so I can pretend the ever-present frown is a smile. I dream of the day when you smile and tell me you love me instead of hate me and storm off in tears because I asked you to do your homework. I wish there was a monetary value to tears as if there were, we'd be rich. I hope this year will be better and all MY dreams come true.
And off to prepare for her complaints about her birthday gift.
