According to Wikipedia, you share your birthday with some illustrious figures:

And so on and so forth.

I didn’t get you anything but I don’t suppose you’re registered anywhere? Do you have an Amazon wish list like everybody else in the world? Or should I just take you out to dinner when we’re both free? I’ve been dying to check out The Purple Pig but if you want to hit a more traditional spot like The Signature Room, I’m cool with that, too.

I’m sorry I can’t make it to the party that the Chicago History Museum is throwing for you, but I’m sure you’ll have an awesome time. Try not to have too much to drink.
