Hey, it's my 44th birthday (gulp). What do I want for my cumpleanos?
What-- wait. Nothing?
Yup. I don't need a thing.
The few books and comics I want, I buy for myself.
The movies I want to watch, I get through Netflix.
The clothes I want? I don't really need them. (I work at home, who cares how good I look?)
The love I need? I already have it from all of you.
Everything else? It just doesn't matter.
So if you really, really, really need to do anything for my birthday, just go out there and do something good for someone else in the world.
That's better than a present for me. It's a gift for all of us.
