So, there you have it, folks. Words of Wisdom from my 10 year old. They really are valuable words, aren't they? That being said... it's true. Today IS my birthday...or perhaps I should say Lifeday? Or even Existenseday. Hmmm... yes, Existenceday. Methinks I like that very much!
Happy Existenseday to me!
