Bonus Birthday

At some point we realize birthdays are no big deal and sort of give up on doing anything special with them. It's sad in a way, because it seems like depriving our inner child of cake starves him to death.

Wow, I didn't intend for that to be so depressing.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to my birthday in 2012. It's what I call the "bonus birthday," because that's the year my birthday would be on a Sunday, but the leap year causes it to skip it. Because, let's face it, Sunday birthdays are the worst, since you feel kind of guilty if you have any fun.

When's your bonus birthday?

You know, you bring up a very interesting point. Many adults give up on doing anything special on their birthday.

Personally, I think that's a travesty. Although you know where I was on my last birthday, I always make it a point to have the day off so I can relax, reflect, and truly enjoy the day. A way to distinguish it from every other.

Even if it is not a day to party, it is a day to reflect and grow. Wow . . . now I feel like a hippie. Ah well.
