Jaison “Pokie” Joshua

On January 7th, 19xx, Jaison “Pokie” Joshua was born.  On January 7th, 2014.  I forgot to wish him a happy birthday.

Pokie is a great dude and a really great friend.  Every year without fail, he’s the first one to wish me a Happy Birthday via text exactly at midnight.  I don’t know how he does it.  Many of those years, I’m sleeping while that text comes in and don’t get it till I wake up.  I’ve always been bad about birthdays.  Outside of my immediate family, I don’t really wish people Happy Birthday, unless we’re at a birthday party, and of course you acknowledge it then.

It’s not that I don’t care, but I just don’t remember.  Now with Facebook, you get a friendly reminder of your friend’s bdays and you’re able to shoot ’em a quick message.  Great tool!  But what about those that are not on Facebook?

Anyway, this year I wanted to make it a point to wish Pokie a happy birthday, but forgot.  The day after this birthday at 3:30pm I remembered and shot him a frantic text with an apologetic “happy birthday”.  Sad, I know.  But that’s where this blog post comes in.

Pokie mentioned to me that he want’s to beat Dudley’s record at the most comments on my blog this year, so I know that he’s reading this.  I hope this makes up for forgetting!

I would post a pic of Pokie, but he’s recently gone through an amazing transformation where he lost a few pound and looks great!  Like jaw-dropping great.  I don’t have an updated pic, so didn’t wanna post something that was dated.

I know it’s late, but….HAPPY BIRTHDAY POKIE!  You’re the best!

  1. I too would like to say Happy Bday to Pokie!!!!


  2. Thanks Sajan. This definitely makes up for forgetting. I see that I am moving up the friendship category. I went from friend, to close friend, to now really great friend. Next year when you forget, hopefully I can get the title “a really good friend who can borrow my truck (if it starts) for free.”
