Citing an old Hindu proverb, it reads: “For the first thirty years of your life; you make your habits. For the last thirty years of your life, your habits make you.” The card goes on to say, “You’ve helped me acquire my habits (good and bad). Thank you for joining me tonight to celebrate thirty more years of living with them.” At the bottom of the card is a polka-dotted bowtie.
