Now, I'm a pretty cynical bastards overall and it sorta baffled me that someone would call me up to wish me a happy birthday, ecspecially someone I barely knew and who I had only mentioned the date in passing a year ago. Immediately my brain starts churning trying to calculate what seemingly made no sense. I would have sooner believed he was calling to tell me about some wonderful money-making investment in Nigeria that he had wanted to let me in on.
We chatted for a bit and I hung up feeling sorta confused. It's not like it was any huge big effort on his part, but it's still not what I would expect from practically a stranger. I feel like I'm having a grinch "heart grew three sizes" moment.
