Funny Birthday Quotes for Those Special Family Days
Funny Birthday Quotes
I think my thirteenth birthday was my favorite. It was the age of becoming a teenager. So, my parents really wanted it to be special. My first stop was at my Mother's parent's house. My Grandmother and Grandfather Rayls had cake and ice cream and presents waiting for me.
The one gift I was hoping for was a tape recorder, an old device used to record you voice on magnetic tape - yes, I know, I must be really old right now. I guess I am. Phyllis Diller, a comedienne from the 1960's, once said, "I know I'm getting old when my back goes out more than I do." That is so true.
The second stop to my thirteenth birthday celebration was my Father's parents' house, in the country. This was even better. My Grandparents there were of a more sturdy stock, and my Grandfather and mother had plenty of wise things to say.
They only had clothes for me as presents, but the meal and cake were fantastic. When I acted a bit disappointed with my presents, my Grandfather announced, "You know, Lewis Carroll, the guy who wrote Alice in Wonderland, once said that '...there are three hundred and sixty-four days you might get un-birthday presents...and only one for birthday presents, you know'" That really didn't help my case at all.
The best part of my birthday wasn't over yet. My big Uncle Terry, my Dad's brother, came by to celebrate. He already had a plan. He was going to take me and my cousins and siblings snow sledding! I already knew the huge hill he was planning on going to. We all got bundled up and headed out with our sleds and skimmers. Now I can recall a quote from a famous person named Robert Orben. Mr. Orben was a joke writer for many years, who later wrote for the American President Gerald Ford. He was quoted as saying, "The best birthdays of all are the ones that haven't arrived yet!" If that means the birthdays get better, then we are all in for a treat!
