Today is my birthday. I have reached the venerable age of 29.
Ordinarily, I really enjoy my birthday. But this year seems a bit different. Normally, either my brother or my best friend takes me out for a meal, but I haven't heard from either of them in a while, and I even tried to call my best friend earlier in the week. Maybe they've disappeared into the void.
Is it scary that I've received more birthday wishes from online sources than from my RL friends? I must admit, the e-cards are quite funny, but it's not quite the same. An e-hug is no comparison to a real hug.
Oh well, it's just a day like any other. At least one of my co-workers took me out to lunch. Of course, it helps that I wrote my birthday in on the office calendar. Am I pathetic or what?
