Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday, Dear Elizabeth,
Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday greetings, not from the past...
Not from the future...
But rather like Star Trek or Lost,

From an alternate universe!

Yes, an alternate universe where Birthday Cake from Shaw's is health food, and vegetables are junk food.

An alternate world where all you kids go to public school.

An alternate world where Ulysses is a Hippie. With long hair. And a Volkswagen Bus.

And don't even ask about what your Mom and Dad is like here.

An alternate universe where our families actually live right next door to each other. As a matter of fact, you are over here right now, and it is really creepy because you are watching me type this. Whoa, this is weird.

Hey, stop hitting me with your Riding Crop! That hurts!!!

In this universe, you are still having your birthday today, although this month is known as Glacqnor (the Q is silent), so you were born on the 41st of Glacqnor here.

There is one thing here that is the same: You are a very precious young lady to us here too, and we love you very much.

And so, your alternate universe friends wish you a very Happy Birthday. We hope you enjoy lots of yummy Brussels sprouts and asparagus which is what we'll be having here.

Hey, quit hitting me with your Riding Crop, and stop kicking me (O.K., I guess some things don't change, even in alternate universes)!
