Its my party and I'll cry if I want too. Oh wait a minute, I'm a guy and I don't cry. That plus I am not having a party, nor will I probably have many parties any more because I say the say birthday month as my lovely wife and two son's. Yeah that's right we all celebrate our birthday in July. Its no big deal that I don't have a birthday party, I think I kind of got more attention then I wanted when I was younger, because I usually had my birthday while I was at Scout Camp, and even celebrated my 19th birthday during an 8-mile hike in Marine Corp Boot Camp.
I will say one thing though and it probably seems selfish, but I have always liked receiving presents, even if its something small, its the fact that somebody took the time to acknowledge my birthday. I don't know why that is such a big deal to me, especially when I always try to play it off, but I have always been weird about accepting reconigition for something. I would love it, but I'm not going to go looking for you to acknowledge me, so if you don't acknowledge me, then its no sweat off my back.
This year defiently seems a lot different and I can't quite place my finger on what seems so different. Maybe because I am accepting that I'm older and I think my brother graduating from high school has something to do with that, or maybe the fact that my oldest son is starting first grade in the fall. I really don't know what it is, and I may not want to know, but instead will probably just accept the fact that I'm getting older.
If you would by chance like to get me something, please feel free to check out my amazon wish list and just find something cheap towards the bottom of the list. If you do check it out, please realize that some of those items truly are a wish. I mean after all it is a wish list right?
Well I'm off to go watch the Royals attempt to beat the Toronto Blue Jays, and tailgate, but first I have 5 miles to run for my marathon training.
