For my dearest Dude on his special day.

It’s not every day that your buddy has a birthday. That’s a fact (look it up). On this special day, I see nothing short of a blazing opportunity to resuscitate something that’s spent more time flat-lining than Kiefer Sutherland himself: this comic, as well as the cornucopia of ideas that spurs from therein.

See below my first attempt at something that might soon be our next struggling and underfed endeavor.  When writing a weakSauce greeting card, to celebrate a birthday no less, there are at least a few things I tried to keep in mind.  In this case, my list was simple:

1. Audience–my dearest dude, my best friend, my partner in crime.

2. Message–wry, adorable, and funny: three attributes of our very relationship hopefully exemplified here.

3. Presentation–subtle, intentional, and (of course) repetitive: something that’s gained us a love/hate relationship with many (sooo many).

With that all said, imagine with me now that you have just received this card.  You’ve opened the envelope, a bright canary yellow with “Jordo” scribbled on the front.  Pulling out the card, you notice blue and green landscape accented by a mystery chair and multi-culti couch, and adorned with a few sentences scrawled out as such:

B-Day Front

Now continue to imagine with me as we move from the front of the card, gripping its outer edge, tugging it gently in your direction, and revealing the splendor that is within:
B-Day Inside

Happy Birthday, Jordo!  I can’t tell you how happy I am that we’ve managed to stay friends all this time–particularly considering how fleeting our investments are in common interests, projects, and goals 🙂  Let’s make this happen!
