Is it half-full or half-empty?
Today is my half-birthday, I just realized. The only reason I am aware of this is that my sister's birthday is coming up soon, and when we were kids our families used to give both of us "half-birthday" gifts on each other's birthdays. This was to reduce any hard feelings on the part of the one not having the birthday. Since my sister's birthday is in February and mine is in August, this worked out quite conveniently for our family.
I'll take my gifts in cash, thanks.
(Is just joke. No gifts, please. Just your undying adoration. That's enough.)
