The Birthday Boy, Juan.
Well, kids. This is it. The very last day. I successfully created a new one-minute audio piece for every single day of August. This has not been without challenges. Not going to bed until 2am, ditching plans/people to stay home and record something, forcing friends to let me record them, making an ace of myself as I ask a stranger on the airplane if I can record our conversation, screaming at the Internet as our wireless goes off and on, etc. But the very worst thing… I have had an entirely one-track mind. And what happens when you have an entirely one-track mind? You forget things. And the worst thing to forget? Your friends. And what's even worse? Forgetting your best friends. And what's even worse than that? Forgetting their birthdays.
Juan. I am so sorry I didn't call you on your birthday. For nearly ten years, you have always been there for me. Unlimited (free!) IT/web help, fabulous music mixes, evading weird dudes, rides all over Austin/Dallas, late night cravings, movies galore, and helping me keep in touch when I'm not that great at it. I am so sad to have made you sad.
So, the very last episode of the Daily Sixty series is dedicated to you, my dear friend. It features the voicemail that you should have received. Plus some bonus material featuring some very special guests. Happy birthday, Juanch. Everyone you meet loves you and I am no exception. This sixty seconds is for you.
