Happy Birthday Daddy

Yes, I still say Daddy. I'm such a daddy's girl it's disgusting. But it's always been that way and why change now? I really like this card and it's also very much "my dad". I think it's elegant and to me, that's my dad. He's that guy that irons his jeans. He always has to look good, which could come from years of being on stage. Actually, no, I think he's always been like that. Oh, sorry. Yes, I said stage. My dad is a singer, but even cooler to me, he plays the drums. No, I won't go into how he wouldn't let me learn to play them. But he wouldn't. But I won't whine about it, cuz it's his birthday. Anyway, he used to (and sometimes still does) sing with The Platters. I know I've mentioned that before, but I'm pretty sure when I did, my mom was the only one reading my blog. So now you guys are all caught up. Anyways, what I was getting at is that my dad is just a really classy guy, so I think this card is really fitting for him. He's an awesome guy and everybody loves him. Everybody. And everybody seems to know him too, which is strange. So, if you're in Las Vegas, and you know Otis and you see him today, be sure to tell him Happy Birthday!

Yep, classy and elegant. The card and the guy. By the way, he ironed his jeans before you were born and before he was on stage, so he's just that way.
Happy Birthday, Cookie!
(which I never called him, but it's still so funny)
