We have . . . there is a . . .why is there a . . .
I don't know how to ask this:
Do greeting cards have a mind of their own? Do they disappear for other folks the way they do for us? Do other people buy birthday cards and graduation cards and baby shower cards which silently disappear?
Do we buy too early? Probably. This gives the cards more time to plan their getaway. There is one beautiful card which has an eagle on it. Somewhere. We lost it before the scheduled birthday arrived. We found it some months later and it again disappeared. If it turns up again, I will capture it and hand it to the recipient whether it is his official birthday or not.
I am beginning to feel that cards might be an unnecessary evil. Unless, of course, the birthday in question happens to be mine . . .
