Birthday Cake....

Birthday Cake

You may have heard it said that birthdays are just nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake. I don’t know how true this saying is, and frankly I don’t care about cakes or birthdays. But on my birthday this year, as strange as this might sound to you, someone surprised me with a personal cake for my birthday. This year is the second year in a row that I’ve had my birthday celebrated in the company of friends and family. I am not usually one for big mushy moments, so l sometimes find myself wondering why my friends and family are always secretly organizing these overly sentimental get-togethers and putting me smack dab at the receiving end of suspiciously warm and elaborate well-wishes. At any rate, the event was a rousing success and it helped remind me once more the invaluableness of genuine friends and a loving family.

As for that cake, it did not have an amazing evening I am sorry to say. Hungry souls devoured the cake no sooner than I had dropped the knife with which I cut the cake. All’s fair in a gathering of hungry but emotional birthday well-wishers, and they did justice to the cake and the food that were prepared on that day. If I am alive to see another birthday, I hope I can have some much needed peace and quiet. You know what? I think I’ll just skip town when the time comes. Why? There is a limited number of times I want to see close friends and family get misty-eyed and cheerful at the same time. What about you? How did you celebrate your birthday?

  1. Emu... Cake does not mean the same thing it used to these days. Ask Rihanna.

  2. Lol cakes dont have any meaning.. even for me I hate cakes period! the last time I had a cake was at my 12th birthday and even then I didnt want it. But cakes are just blah!

  3. Hehehehe..such a colorful cake. That is exactly how the make and decorate cakes back home. lol... but it looks yummy. To bad it's not chocolate, knowing u its yellow cake. Anyway, i didn't get a cake for my bday. but i had me some brownies with milk. it was yummyyyy. Too bad it was not laced with weed...hehehehehehehe.

  4. LOL@ weed laced brownies. Are you sure you can handle them?

  5. Such a nice cake....most birthdays for me come and go without the noise level being raised. I surprised my office peeps this year by telling them at the close of work it was my birthday.

    I just see it as a day to reflect, thank God for his mercies and look to a more productive year(s) ahead.
