So my birthday came and went.
I didn't do anything lavish or special this year, compared to last years' week-long celebrations, cuz it didn't warrant the need to.
My dear Sis bought me a nice set lunch at Michelangelo's, I then went with her to Ikea to pick out her cupboard - and bought myself a new throw/blanket along the way, dammit the temptation was too strong! In the evening my buddy redcocoon invited me over to share dinner with him and his lovely wife. I then came home and stayed online till 6 in the morning.
Heck, I didn't so much as have a beer!
Some birthdays are significant:
@16, when you think adulthood is imminent...
@18, when you think, yes adulthood has finally dawned!
@21, when they tell you that, yes NOW you are an adult. There's even a cake in the shape of a key to cut into!
@30, when you wonder what you've been doing (or not) since becoming a full-fledged adult at 21
@35, when you panic and wish you were back at 18...or 21? Ok la, at least 30 can??
34; one year short to be a highlight, and many over to be bothered about.
Still, I very much appreciate the SMSes, the calls, comments in blogs(mine and SgGooner's) and the E-card from my beautiful Thai friend.
I will reciprocate the above congratulatory gestures, and hope that yours don't end with a whimper like mine.
Now then, onwards with my adult life...
