The Birthday Card

Every year a birthday comes, especially of that of my little brother and sister, I feel bad about getting a present. You see, I can never truly know what to get someone for their birthday without asking them what it is they want, which ruins the surprise. The one time I finally figured out how to make an awesome gift was for my little brother and sister’s fifteenth birthday. Two days prior to their party, inspiration struck me. I said to myself, “I know what I can do! I can make a homemade birthday card for them!” But I didn’t want to make a boring one: I wanted a special card for them. So I looked up on Youtube on how to print a card using Microsoft Word. Came up with a funny joke to put in it, surfed the web for a good pic that would fit and after thirteen failed attempts finally produced the card fit for the best brother and sister in the world. Finally the day of reckoning came. It was my turn to present my gift, so I stepped up with a smug smile and handed it to my brother and sister. They quickly tore it open with glee and pulled out the card. On its front in big bright yellow font read, “For your Birthday, a special someone wanted to send you special birthday greetings.” They opened it up to see written in red creepy font, “See ya soon,” with a picture of the Grim Reaper waving. My brother dies of laughter along with his friends but my sister stays quiet. She looks at the card for a moment, then looks at me, then back to the card. Then finally she looks up and says, “James?”

“Yeah, Tabby?” I answered back,

“Who’s the Grim Reaper?”

I’ve not made another birthday card since.
