Birthdays, in my opinion, are usually as good as you make them. I’ve had some really amazing ones, from the giant party my roommate threw me (ages and dates withheld on that one) to the last minute giant dinner party some really great people showed up for in Austin a few years ago. It’s always fun to get to throw out a few demands – people get to humor you with all they might normally not do in an effort to please you. I love skipping presents in lieu of events.
MK is biting the bullet this year and taking me again out for a favorite pastime – sitting with friends drinking great wine, eating good overpriced food. He takes no joy in a long drawn out fancy pants sit down dinner. We were going to go for Chinese, last year I demanded that be an annual tradition. We changed our minds and decided to hit the amazing seafood restaurant at Deer Valley this weekend. I can’t wait. I’m not eating for a few days to prepare. After that I’ve got company coming in (three different trips) which include other birthday celebrations. It’s going to be good, I have no doubts.
Getting older certainly doesn’t always feel fun. Just try to make the most of it.
What was your best birthday ever?
