Stop Crying and Blow Out The Candles
As a kid I wanted to have a birthday party but I was too shy to invite other kids. What if they said no? What if my dad peed on the fence and everyone saw?
Out of fear or just circumstance birthdays were kept to family. Since I came from a large family this was actually pretty great. Except for the year they forgot the cake and instead gave me a potato with a candle in it. Not a birthday candle, one of those dinner table candles.
Happy birthday, finish your potato.
