7Birthday AdviceToday on your birthday I think you should know— you’re getting too old now to suck on your toe. And when you get hungry I hope you won’t spread the jam that you find between your toes on your bread.Do not shine your shoes with the wax from your ear. Don’t shampoo your hair with your dad’s favorite beer.
