I Am The 4,584,276,804th Person On This Planet
Dear Danica Camancho,
Welcome newest member of our race. You might have heard that you have been declared by the UN to be the 7 billionth member of our esteemed gang- that is a pretty big number for such a little person! I remember when the UN declared me the 4,584,276,804th member of our population- sure it's not a nice round figure, but it was a pretty special day for my folks at least. Sometimes I find it hard to remember what number I was, so I keep referring back to this handy tool which calculates what number member of the population you are- but you'll probably never have difficulty remembering what number you are...
That's a pretty epic cake they made you- looks like more than enough slices to go round. Speaking of enough to go around, have you heard all the debate about our rapid population growth? Hope you're not claustrophobic as it appears that we are going to get more and more cramped as the days wear on- in fact, another 600 kids have been born in the time it has taken you to read this. But never fear, we're all in this together, so we'll figure out how to make room for us- it'll be just like Christmas time when we somehow manage to sit 14 people around a table made for six.
Anyways, welcome to the madhouse.
