You’ve had a birthday, shout hooray!
We want to sing to you today
One year older and wiser, too
Happy birthday, to you!!
I almost went my whole birthday without being sung to or blowing out candles (the curses of not liking cake/your parents being out of town), but my awesome coworkers stepped in and saved the day. Like, seriously. I work with possibly the nicest people in existence.
And as for the rest of the day, Nathanael Neil had big shoes to fill—Barbara Ballantyne’s shoes. I was a little worried for him, to be honest. Buuuuut everything turned out marvelously! I received all the words of affirmation, flowers, pizza, and tickets to Paramore a girl could ever hope for.
Oh yeah. And obviously I celebrated my birthday evening by dancing in a Middle Eastern dance concert. (It was supposed to be “family friendly” and my dance was the most family friendly thing this side of Disneyland, but I’m not so sure about some of the others…. We’ll see if I keep doing this.)
