Birthdays are similar to signs on the road as you travel. Except that you do not know how long the trip is, where it is going to go, and why you are going there. In fact, you are not sure you know what the sign is trying to tell you. And usually, you are not interested in reaching your destination. Namely, birthdays are like signs on the road, but only if you are lost in a foreign country and can not read the signs.

Thats why analogies are so useful: They can explain anything.

  1. Happy birthday!

  2. Although you cannot read the signs, you can somehow tell that they form an increasing sequence.

    Happy birthday! It was celebrated with fireworks off the Eiffel Tower. 🙂

  3. People often forget that those are the wrong signs to read.

    Happy birthday, Sariel 🙂


  4. Thanks for your congratulations…
