The Countdown Begins...
I was raised to believe that birthdays are important. Every year, my mother would plan parties for my brother and me, get us birthday cakes, gather our relatives and have an event that made us feel special. We'd open gifts and feel like the center of the universe. Those are nice memories.
I start getting excited around this time of year. My birthday is November 3rd and I can't wait. This year, I'm treating thirty of my friends to a Saturday night gala at the fanciest restaurant in town. It's the same place I took my friends to on Halloween last year. I reserved a private room for us and ordered the best menu, full of delicacies.
You guys are extra-special to me and I'm trying to figure out some way to celebrate with you. So far, no ideas come to mind. If you have any clever notions, let me know.
Do you like to celebrate birthdays?
