OMG. You are 16. That means I am really old.

I was 21 when you were born. I was asleep when your grandma called me to come to the hospital because you were about to pop out. I waited 5 hours once I got there. You were born around 6 a.m. Thanks for making me wait. I had to work that night. :^P

It was totally worth it though. Who knew you would spring forth from the birth canal, covered in placenta, and take the world by storm? (If you think that's gross, just remember, you made me watch this):

Once seen, it can't be unseen. Payback, my dear nephew, payback.

You march to the beat of your own drum and I like that about you. I don't know what you're gonna do with your life but I'm pretty sure it won't be what most people do.

You're all grown up now. In just two years, you'll be able to vote! I know, I know. You've been waiting your whole life to punch a ballot but you're just going to have to wait. You'll have to settle for driving a car for now.

You said you didn't know what you wanted for your birthday and I can't afford much so I bought you a domain name and made you this web page. As long as you have the domain name, you'll always be able to use it.

Anyway, I love you, kid. I want the best for you and I want you to be happy. There's just one more thing:

Happy Freaking 16th Birthday, Collin!!

P.S. You can put up any kind of website you want when you're ready. This is just a design I made for you. You can still save this page if you want and hide it somewhere on your site where no one can find it. If you have ideas for what you want for your website now, let me know. If not, it can wait.
