Happy Birthday

So I've had some numbers of birthdays, between thirty and forty. Tell my why the birthday party for a 90 year old grandfather was more fun than any of mine, and perhaps even more fun than all of mine combined?

More later, but for now, ponder this: You get to the aisle with all the cards. You get to the birthday section. You get to the special birthdays section. You see 16th, 21st, 50th, and so on, until you get to 90th. There is only one 90th birthday card. It's not as if you have ten 90th birthday cards to choose from. So I picked it. Then I wondered, does every store have a different 90th birthday card, or is Grandpa going to open up ten copies of the exact same card? The party was such that the cards were put aside to be opened later, after we all had left. I'll see him at Christmas and ask, but in the meantime, anyone have any ideas? Any Hallmark employees out there?
