Ed. We met when I was thirteen and I’ve adored him ever since. I introduced him to my daughter last year and she loves him too. Ed is a peculiar sort of guy, he is very reclusive and some people find him depressing to be around but there is no doubt that he has a certain point of view that is hard to ignore. I admit, he is very pessimistic, but he is damn entertaining at times. Therefore, I want to wish Ed a very happy birthday, most especially this year, because his good friend who has been dropping by with half a bottle of cognac and three lovely roses since 1949, didn’t show.
HAPPY 201st BIRTHDAY ED!
