A Birthday Poem for Nat
 

Nat, will there be any large jewelry cutters at your party?

Will there be a hole enlarger or a small earring card?

Nat, will there be a 7 spool case at your birthday party?

Will there be a 13 spool case or a 20 spool case there, Nat?

Will there be a small easel there, because if I see a small easel

Or even a large easel, Nat, I’m not coming. What about stacking trays for bracelets.

Are you planning on serving bracelets on top of stacking trays?

You know how I feel about stacking trays, Nat.

Nat, what about one of those 3-sided revolving trays in an acrylic case?

Will there be any 3-sided revolving trays in acrylic trays at your birthday party?

I better not see a 3-shelf mirrored looking case or a mirrored necklace and bracelet acrylic looking case.

Nat, if I see one, just one 3-shelf mirrored looking case or a mirrored necklace and bracelet

Acrylic looking case, I’m taking my 4-sided rotating velvet display gift and walking

Out the door. I can’t stand 3-shelf mirrored looking cases and I hate mirrored necklace and bracelet

Acrylic looking cases even more.

Nat let me ask you this:

Will there be any acrylic sign holders with business card pockets at your birthday party?

I love acrylic sign holders with business card pockets.

Nat, what about a 3-level acrylic riser. Will there be any 3-level acrylic risers there?

I’m just asking.

Will you be having acrylic wedges at your party?

I should let you know that I’m allergic to acrylic wedges. I just want you to know that.

I won’t be able to come if I see acrylic wedges and counter leather necklace displays.

I’m not allergic to counter leather necklace displays, I just don’t like them.

I love acrylic sign holders with business card pockets, but I can’t stand leather necklace displays.

Nat, how about black acrylic necklace stands?

Are you planning on having black acrylic necklace stands at your birthday party?

I don’t have anything against black acrylic necklace stands. I’m just asking.

Do you still have that 3 tier fiberglass earring holder I gave you last year for your birthday?

It cost me a fortune, but only the best 3 tier fiberglass earring holder for my friend, Nat.

Nat, how do you feel about large 3-piece acrylic riser sets?

Will there be a velvet apple ring case at your birthday party?

I love to play pin the tail on the velvet apple ring case.

Will there be a 3-level acrylic T-bar there, Nat?

I fell off a 3-level acrylic T-bar once when I was a kid. I needed 20 spool stitches in my Plexiglas dome.

It hurt like a leather lock necklace.

Nat, will there be any half dome chain anklets at your party or anklet half dome acrylic bracelets?

You know how much I love half dome chain anklets and anklet half dome acrylic bracelets.

I don’t want you to think me high maintenance. It’s your birthday party after all.

I can’t wait until you see what I got you for your birthday.

You’re going to be smiling from T-bar to T-bar.
