100 Word Challenge: Happy birthday

This week, Julia has challenged us to produce something in honor of her son’s 36th birthday. To make it easier not easy at all, she’s provided a photo prompt:

At first I thought of trying to write some verse – always popular in the world of birthday cards. Sadly, I realized that my doggerel would be a dreadful insult to the lovely lady in the prompt, so I retreated to the very finest advice-book prose:

Happy Birthday to You

Now that you’re all grown up…

It’s time to learn how to dress in a tasteful and mature way.

  • Your hair should always be well groomed.
  • Cats-eye glasses frames are a timeless classic look, and especially stunning if you choose a color that complements your own fur.
  • Always accessorize carefully, not too much or too little. A simple choker will put the final touch on your image, without the stuffiness of an “old-school” tie.
  • Last, but by no means least, just a hint of tongue adds that je ne sais chat that will make you the envy of everyone you meet!

  1. Very funny Sharon,right to the cackle back! this one has been fun hasn’t it?

  2. Dressing in a tasteful and mature way is always good advice even if others may not always agree with the choices we make. It’s our choices that show our individuality. This cat will be noticed. πŸ™‚

  3. So that is why my cat goes round with her tongue out all the time, she is trying to look cool πŸ™‚
