Dear Daddy Sarkozy,
Quelqu'un m'a dit (no, not Carla, it was Facebook) that it's your birthday today. Happy 54th!
You've been Daddy of France for almost 2 years and you've been quite a busy bee. They say once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed. That's so true in your case. You've been reforming left and right, spanking your Justice & Human Rights Ministers and sending them to the naughty corner on a daily basis, travelling all over the world managing crises, and romancing La Carla every night.
Hey Dad, when are you gonna slow down a bit? France needs you for another eight years!
I wonder what gifts you'll be getting for your big Cinq-Quatre?
-Carla singing "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to you in her birthday suit?
-A new (and better) pair of platform shoes so you don't have to stand on your tippy toes next to Carla? I hear Tom Cruise's shoemaker is looking to expand his business in Europe....
-A Swatch watch?
Big Fry picked out the Chrono Plastic for you. It would be a great PR move on your part to wear plastic on your wrist during the recession. Yet Daddy, somehow I think you'd probably prefer a Vacheron Constantin chronograph (at about 300 times the price of a Swatch) recession or not. Who cares about image?
Joyeux Anniversaire Daddy!
And don't forget, age is important only if you're cheese or wine.
Kisses on both cheeks,
