A number can mean so many things

First Larry Bird

Then Scottie Pippen

Later it's the amount of money I need for beer and cigarettes on Friday night

Then it is the number of minutes I stressed out about calling Arica for the first time

Maybe it's the number of sweat beads on my forehead as she walks down the aisle

Now it could be the number of times an hour Braden makes my heart leap with joy

Or the number of toy cars he has strewn across the floor

It's the exact number of days until the start of Muzzleload season

But today it also means something else

They say that age is just a number

Today my number is 33

You're so creative. I love this!

Happy birthday! Hope it's a great one and that Braden gives you a big hug and slobbery kiss!

I love this take on it! I went with 42 "I believes".

Happy Happy Birthday! And 3 times 33 more!

It's also the mystery number on the back of a bottle of Rolling Rock :)

Happy Birthday.

Enjoy it, man. And milk it for every minute of free alone time you can muster.
FYI: 33 is the amount of times I've angrily told my brother-in-law that Michael Vick is one of the most overrated football players in NFL history.

Happy Birthday, albeit belated now. 33 is not such a bad number. It's 33 years of knowledge and experience that translate into wisdom. May you keep growing that.

Happy Birthday! YAY for 33! Lucky number 33. And you're a Virgo. Hooray! I'll bet I have at least 33 tiny cars strewn across my floor at any given moment as well. Ha ha!

Happy (late) birthday! 33 is a good round number.
