happy-birthday-bear-8437694Someone’s birthday and Christmas are close together, which I’ve always thought an awful conjunction. I think those born in December get cheated a bit.

Thinking of birthday prizes is hard enough for me, but to do so while considering Christmas is even harder. Usually he doesn’t want much if anything for his birthday.  Applying “Five love languages” here, Someone isn’t big into receiving gifts or ‘making a fuss”. This year he wants me to take him to brunch and then to  a matinee at a community theatre.

As usual, he opts for food and my company to things of real value.

Poor guy! He’s saddled with me, who loves to give prizes and make a lot of fuss on everybody’s birthday. I don’t think birthdays are proper ones without cards and a ‘prize’ or two wrapped in gay colours.  Everyone should get their birthday off.  The day should be spent being cosseted. The perfect birthday day has the preferable ending of a nice dinner out, some birthday cake, and etc.

But what one wants on ones birthday trumps what one ought to get.

My paper journal reminds me this year all I wanted for my birthday was a grease-fest of fish and chips and ale at the local pub, and the etc.

I got both.
