Happy birthday Clancy! I’m pretty sure I don’t know what age you are becoming today but whatever it is, you don’t look a day over [actual age — 5 years]!
Seriously, though, was it only a smidge over four years ago when I first met you? I think I have it right. I was, like, two hours late meeting you, Maria, Lisa , and Laura at Florent (R.I.P.). I was all flustered, which is probably why I paid $6 for oatmeal (was I on a health kick?) instead of ponying up some more cash for some bacon and eggs. Ah, stupid Jasmine. But still you were so nice and funny in that low-key natural way that I envy. And you still are, and I still envy you that.
Anyway, I hope you have an awesome day and a beautiful birthday.
