That Guy

Dennis Garsjo, 73, of Glasgow, Montana, may not know your name when he greets you on the street, but he'll call out to you anyway, using your birthday.

"Top of the morning to ya, April 11," he might say, according to KRTV.

Garsjo has memorized more than 3,000 birthdays and says he came by the talent naturally.

"My mother remembered all our relatives' birthdays before she started getting dementia," he said. "I don't think my talent is all that special. I'm more impressed by musicians who can play a song from memory on the piano."

Still, residents of Prairie Ridge Village, where he works, enjoy The Birthday Guy, as he's known, and he loves surprising people with their special day. [KRTV, 1/26/2023]
