How important is a card?
See, I'm in a bit of a predicament. Well, not really. I'm just super lazy and my laziness has caused a mini-crisis for me. Basically, I need to mail a birthday card and I keep forgetting to go and buy one. I've been intending to get one for about two weeks now and I always seem to forget when I'm at the store. I could go to the store and get one now, but again I'm lazy and don't want to go anywhere. I'm at home and in my comfy pants, people! I could just go get one tomorrow, but I know I'll forget again. I could make a card, but I'm out of paper for the printer. I also don't have any construction paper to construct one with.
What's a lazy girl to do?
My thought is that I'll use one of the free cards The Humane Society sent me a few months ago. They totally remind me of cards you would find at the dollar store, though. Why do cheap cards always have to have a teddy bear on them?? And, none of them are birthday-themed cards. One is for the 4th of July. Like, WTF! Who sends 4th of July cards anyway? So, I thought I would just cross out the "Get Well Soon" and write in "Happy Birthday." After I did it, I realized it looked dumb. Then, I colored it in and created a heart. Still dumb, but a little better.
Is this offensive or funny? Is it less offensive if there's money in it? What about the nice, thoughtful message I've written inside? Does that make it better? I personally would not mind getting this card in the mail. In fact, I'd probably blog about the lazy person that sent it to me.
So, I come back to my initial question: How important is a card?
