I live in Texas. My old friend lives in California. Every year on his birthday I call him when I get to work in the morning. I get in to work at 0600. In California, that's 0400. Early. He's learned to mute his phone that night. But he still allows me to leave my annual very long and annoying message. "Wake up little buddy. You awake? It's your birthday. Are you a sleepy head?"...blah, blah, blah. Good times.
Here's to you Pal.
