Over the weekend, I celebrated my 39th birthday. Amongst the very cool gifts I received from my family (like Wii Sports Resort), I also received some very creative online birthday wishes.
But one particular birthday wish really stood out to me. And for several reasons. The first is that it was a personal video wishing me happy birthday. The second is that the person who made the video lives in Sweden and I have never met him face-to-face.
The person I am referring to is Jon B Alfredsson and he is one of my friends I met on Facebook. I have not had a lot of previous communication with Jon on Facebook but after watching the video he made for me, I feel like I’ve known him for years.
I wish I could share the video right here on my blog but I was unable to find the link or embed code necessary to do so. But since the video is short and concise, I thought some of you might enjoy a simple screenshot of the video along with the transcript of what Jon said in the video.
Hello, hello Patric. Dr. Jon here from Sweden. I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday here from Sweden. And I hope you are having a great day and enjoying yourself. Here in Sweden it’s raining so I hope you have better weather than me. But anyway, I wish you a great, great day and we keep in touch. Buh-bye.
