I've always thought that writing greeting cards would be a great line of work. To sit around thinking up funny birthday card sayings all day is something I could sink my teeth into. Anyone have any ideas how someone gets started in the greeting card writing business?

” Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

” The old believe everything; the middle-aged suspect everything; the young know everything.”

” Few women admit their age. Few men act theirs.”

“Birthdays are nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake.”

“Last week the candle factory burned down. Everyone just stood around and sang, ‘Happy Birthday.’”
