Happy Birthday

There’s this fairly popular social media site I frequent which has a small blue square logo with the letter “f” to one side. Over the past few days, I noticed that I’ve been getting a large number of notifications on this site (not that I normally don’t, given how undeniably popular I am, as you can tell from the way I’m sat here on a Sunday evening writing a blog post).

Thank you so much for all the support and kindness. It really makes writing these posts worthwhile.

But as you open the lid, you make a horrifying discovery – all those large, pesky Brazil nuts have wormed their way to the top (unless you love Brazil nuts in which case it will be a more pleasing discovery).
