“All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.”
Every year, without fail, my birthday comes around and takes me by surprise. I’m never quite sure how to celebrate it. So I decided, this year, to sit down and think about it. What, if anything, would I want for my birthday? Turns out, there were a few things.
So, I graciously came up with this list to make it easier for you all to help me enjoy my special day.
10 THINGS I WANT FOR MY BIRTHDAY:
2. I live in a senior living community, and I want a neighborhood-sponsered FIELD DAY with mandatory participation. I want 3-legged races, bobbing for apples, pie-eating, a water-dunk tank, THE WORKS. And I want ENTHUSIASM!
3. I want a pep talk from Jack Donaghey from “30 Rock” about how to dominate the coming year. Please be my mentor, Jack, I’ll give you all the scotch and horse paintings you could ever want.
4. I want one day where I can eat whatever the fuck I want with no caloric, digestive, or allergic consequences. I’m talking buttered croissants, a tall pint of guinness, and a CINNABON CINNAMON ROLL. My gluten free life would normally never allow for such dissent. Le sigh.
9. I want a huge fenced in field full of at least 500 Yorkshire terriers. I want to see what happens when I let rush out of the barn all at once to graze, herded by, most likely, a few cats. I might have a cuteness stroke (the struggle is real!)
I know it isn’t much, but I do hope you’ll grant these modest wishes of a soon to be twenty- *indistinguishable mumbling* year old.
Thank you kindly in advance for your efforts 😉
