So why do people EXPECT me to celebrate my b-days?

I stopped celebrating, as in doing something special, my b-days awhile ago and yet everyone keeps asking what my plans are; and are "shocked" when I say nothing. Today I said laundry ha ha.

  • Because you're supposed to be deeply needy and naturally greedy, and have a strong desire for other people to shower you with gifts, praise and exaltation so you know you're real.

    Didn't you know? LOL

    I still can't figure out why anyone cares how many times the planet has gone around the sun, not the least because there seems to be some arbitrary starting point in that orbit that I can't find at all. Why is it, for some people, the most interesting or important fact about themselves or anyone else is the date of their manufacture?

  • Because usually something is done even if just an ice cream out! I know what you mean. We don't celebrate b-days in this house anymore. So, is today your birthday? Hope it's a good day and what you want it to be!

  • Ha ha nice ladies!! Thanks! I do celebrate my children's births cause they are an accomplishment I am very proud of. But after a certain age I just don't see a point!
