Daily Prompt wants us to talk about our birthday celebrations.
Unfortunately I really don’t have much to talk about here. Never was big into birthday celebrations. Even as a kid never had those big blowout parties or really wanted to. I see too many birthday parties that were supposed to be for the kids turn into the parent’s reason for having a party. Never understood the reasoning behind buying a keg of beer for your kid’s party, unless of course it wasn’t about the kid.
To me, spending time with people that honestly love me, seeing a movie, or just going about my day like it is any other day is just fine with me. My promise to everyone is that I will never be the one to announce that it is your birthday to a room full of strangers that really don’t give a $h!t, just to embarrass you or to have something embarrassing done to you just so that we can all laugh at you, BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT IT DONE TO ME!! 🙂
The way I see it, 99% of the people that are reading this have already missed the first 49 of my “special days” and I am OK with that. I’ve missed all of yours too. Doesn’t change a thing.
A birthday is a special thing and you should spend it with people that you enjoy, doing things that you enjoy. Other than that it is just another day, just another blessing from God like the 364 other days of the year.
If today is your birthday, then happy birthday. If it isn’t, I hope you still have an awesome day!
