Birthdays generally don’t seem all that exciting for grown-ups.
The last birthday I recall that qualified as “exciting” by any measure was when I had a few friends surprise me at my dorm at Cal State Fullerton for my 21st birthday in 2010. Since then, birthdays have become largely uneventful occasions with no special plans or events of any kind. Each April 4th since 2011 my usual reaction is, “Oh, it’s April 4th. I turn another year old. What’s else is new?”
If I can predict what next weekend is like, I might simply get myself a whole pie or cheesecake for the occasion. Why didn’t I think of that instead of a regular cake sooner? Perhaps this week is that time.
We’ll see. Have a wonderful week, America!
