When is your birthday? Do you want to be pen pals? (I promise not to take up too much of your time)
My birthday is August 11, 1950. Sorry, but I don’t have time enough for a few close friends to have any pen pals too. Just once in a very long while would be about right for me. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like you or want a pen pal, just that I haven’t the time.
