WTF Wednesday - My Birthday Forgotten and Human Oddities

Today is the Mango's birthday! That's right, for sure! I am SIX years old today.

But you know what momma did? NOTHING! WTF?

No liver cake, no pressies, not even a new photo. Instead, I am forced to show you this recycled picture which I think sums up my feelings about the heinous neglect up with which I have to put.

But wait! It gets worse because you know what? Momma forced me to write this post LAST FRIDAY. Which means she was PLANNING to "forget" my birthday. The horror! The disregardance!

As if that isn't bad enough...

Every spring momma complains most annoyingly about the gnats that swarm about her whilst we are engaged in dawn or dusk tennis ball activities. She finds it alarmingly distracting and they do seem enamored with her eyeballs which leads her to run screaming into the house to stick her face under the sink and fret like the end of days has arrived.

What to do?

Surely there is another solution other than the one she came up with....

That's right, look at what she wears. Oh shameless one. What must the neighbors think?

We'll call this momma's WTF head gear. Sheesh. Get a life already.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Check this out. My pal and fellow blogger, Jimmy, has the gnats too. He sent me this shocking photo. You can biggify to see the pesky critters. He better start shopping for a hat.

Happy Birthday Mango Man! I just don't have a clue what is wrong with our humans forgetting our special days. My mom forgot my special day as well and I made her pay for it. I think we will be starting a club called "Did Your Human Forget Your Special Day". Would you like to join us. Sniffs, Cleo and The HOundDogs

Marjie said...

Your birthday is not forgotten. I did a whole post for your birthday today, dude.

As for Momma's hat? I think she's trying to make the whole neighborhood laugh. Like she's the next Jay Leno with the hat. But at least she goes out. My momma totally whines about the bugs and stays inside like some kind of sissy.

Mango! Dude! Happy, happy birthday from me and the girls. We think you look great for 6 and we want you to keep on keepin' on!

Sue said...

We all wish you a happy birthday, Mango. We wouldn't forget.

The gnats like our Mom, too, but she doesn't wear a hat like that. She just swings her arms around and says lots of HBO words. We think if she wore one of those hats, we'd run fast and start barking for help.

dude we'll celebrate your birthday for you massively - happy birthday mango we luffs you!!

Carol from Down Under said...

Happy Birthday big fella. Wow 6 years old. You don't look a day over 5. Maybe your Momma is wearing the WTF hat because she is ashamed of what she has done. Forgetting your birthday on purpose! All I can say is you'd better get something really really good or she won't know the meaning of the word slobber ha ha. Sending you six hugs. No worries, love Carol.

Happy Birthday Mango Man we are so sorry your Mommy is ignoring the day. We will teleport over when you feel up to it and party with you.

Now gnats we know how to deal with, Avon's Skin So Soft. We thinks it was either the lotion or the gelled body oil that we used when we lived in Ocean Springs

Since we live North of the Interstate now we haven't had any problems with no seeums (what Daddy calls gnats), knock on wood.

Mango, your birthday post didn't show in our Google Reader today, we are so sorry we weren't here earlier today to wish you a very huge, relentlessly huge Happy Birthday. We think you may want to celebrate more tomorrow when you are feeling better. Hugs to you, big guy, and feel better!

Mango.. sorry we missed your birthday. Happy 6th Birthday Mango. Hope you did get a surprise cake at the end of the day.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Do you think Mango Momma is prescient? How could she have known you were going to have two major seizures on your birthday instead of the party you rightfully expected? Bah, humbug!

Happy Birthday, RH! We know you at least got lots of attention and snuggles today, and that's the best gift after all.

We sure hope the phenobarbitol helps. Just FYI, when mama's Dane-Lab mix had to go on phenobarbitol due to epilepsy, he did not have any of the side effects Mango Momma is worried about, so maybe you won't have them, either. They are just possible side effects, not guaranteed side effects, and not everyone gets them.

We have our paws crossed for you, RH, always!

BOL! Luv the gnat hat ;P

Mango Man, Happy Belated Birthday!

Sure hoping you had some fun before the monster came and spoiled your party. Maybe George the Lad who slays dragons knows how to slay a Seizure Monster? That would be good.

Waggin my tail for all it's worth for ya pal,

Levi said...

Can't believe your mamma forgot your birthday! I hope mom doesn't forget mine...maybe I need to start leaving reminders now...

Anyway- hope you had fun anyway laughing at your mom in her hat :)
Happy Belated Birthday Mango!

Mango, My mom forgot my birthday too this year! Sucks, doesn't it???

Happy Birthday dude! Hope those seizures stay away!

Mango - We empathize with your situation. Our pawrents are also extremely neglectful in the birthday celebration department. But, we're not complaining too much. Mom has been bringing home bacon (literally! not money :) several times a week lately.

We hope the inevitable guilt will settle in and your Mom will make it up to you. Keep us posted!
