Okay, Abdul, like with Ruby, I will definitely change this one out soon if you want. It's not a bad picture by any means, but I'm just repurposing another picture from before.

Anyway, I hope you have had a wonderful birthday, Abdul. You sure got a beautiful sunny day with the perfect temperature, in my opinion.

One unique thing about Abdul is that he created a mathematical contribution to our class in creating the Abdul Ray. You see, one day earlier in the school year, he pointed out that the viniculum--the line above a repeating decimal--should actually be a ray, because it goes in one direction forever instead of a line, which would go in both directions forever. This was one of the smartest things I had heard anyone point out in a long time. Therefore, it became known as the Abdul Ray. Personally, I think this should be taken into account by the mathematical community at large. (I'll talk to Dr. Goldberg about it.)

He is a fun-loving guy who has had more than one nickname. I liked shortening his name down to Abs, personally. He is also the future proprietor of Abdul's Pretty Good Fruit Salad.

Okay, so it turns out that Abdul is pretty much just the cornerstone of a lot of Area 51 in-jokes, but trust me; he's not a joke. He's a good boy with a great mind.

Happy Birthday, Abdul! You deserve it. I will see you soon.

Thank you very much Mr. Carter. I like every nickname you gave me. You are the best teacher I have ever had. You rock,

Sorry I edited out "Flabs", but I never liked that one. You are clearly not a flabby young man. You rock too, man.
