Today is one of my niece’s birthdays. I thought about how we say, “Happy birthday,” to the person whose birthday it is. There was this Boy Meets World episode where it was Eric’s birthday and his dad said, “Happy birthday” to him and Eric said, “Happy birthday, Dad.” Ha ha! Someone else I know said that it was her Grandson’s birthday and she told him, “Happy birthday.” He responded, “Happy birthday, Grandma!” Cute!
But I think that we can say it like that. We are here for more than taking up other people’s admiration.
