Soon, it's going to be yet another regular day. Birds will sing...cats will meow...dogs will bark...geese will honk and steal peoples stuff.  

A typical, simple, regular day.

However, there is a small, tiny, exception.  The exception is for you, for that is the time when lightning was thrown from above by Zeus to herald your appearance.  Cast in the molten fires of Mount Olympus, and granted with a great creative power, you have been released upon the world to conquer it in whatever manner you see fit!  For it has been foretold by those who can see the future that you are great and true, and that it is your time to shout your joy to the heavens, and revel in the knowledge that on that day, it is written for you to have a Happy Birthday, with many more to come to increase your power and complete your creative conquest!

Also there's hand made cake and ice cream from down the street.  Those folks make some mighty fine cake indeed. Yum! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
I'm just going to leave this here.

In a few days, it is going to be a relatively normal day...for most.  But not for you.  For on that day...it will be a good day to revel in the moment that you were cast down upon this Earth, summoned and placed here by the mighty Odin to share your talents and your creativity with all.  Let thee rejoice and enjoy this time, and know you are wished a Happy Birthday!  May many more follow!

Also, Odin sends cake, blessed by King Kong and delivered by Godzilla! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
