zimdog's words of wisdom: birthdays

Two weeks ago, trying my best to conjure some clever wording for inscription in the birthday card of a planetarium boss, I decided the following:

"Birthdays are like stars: the more you see, the grander life is."

Maybe I can sell it to Hallmark.

And babies eat stars...

Well, in a way, yes. All the elements came from the stars, and everything around us (including baby food) is made up of elements, so babies do eat stars... and humans.

"We are all made of star stuff."
