Many happy returns of the day, Sis, whatever your name is

A man with a shitload of things on his mind has revealed how he was so badly distracted by them, that he very nearly forgot what should have been a very important date in his calendar - his sister's birthday.

Moys Kenwood knew, instinctively, that there was something crucial that he had to remember this week, but, try as he might, he just couldn't put his finger on what it was. He wracked his tired brain, in vain.

Resignedly, he abandoned his efforts, and browsed the internet. He was bombarded with adverts, first for birthday cards, then cakes, and finally one for a hotel specialising in parties for wedding, engagement, Christmas and birthday parties, but still the penny didn't drop.

He experienced an intuitive feeling of dread, knowing that the thing he had to remember was of special significance, and of the utmost gravity.

Try as he might, like a determined and obstinate turd, it just wouldn't come.

Only when he logged on to Facebook, and saw a notification in his 'Notifications', did he realize that it was his sister's 53rd birthday!

"What a fool I've been! Imagine the repercussions there would have been, and the horror that would have ensued, had I not remembered!" he laughed.

He then sent her a short birthday greeting by Messenger.
