Birthday Stuff

Yes, it's my birthday. I'm finally 29. The reality of being almost 30 is upon me, and I have to be honest, I still don't feel too old. Health problems aside (and even then, my kidneys are functioning and my back feels MUCH better) I'm just as immature as I ever was. I don't think getting older changes this. Maybe having a kid would change it, but realistically, that would only regress me further into immaturity. Having a baby would mean staying up later, talking in baby voice, and getting to have an excuse to buy toys I want to play with. Not that Mrs. B. and I are trying to have kids at the moment, but I can see how getting older changes the conversation.

So what does someone do on their birthday? I chose to take yesterday, today, and tomorrow off because why would I want to work on my birthday? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of businesses that give away free stuff on your birthday... feel free to make suggestions on what establishments I should mooch off of today (Wendy's offered my $1 off a frosty- a $1 off? C'mon Wendy's- you can do better than that!)

I don't really have an interesting perspective on getting older, or want to turn this into "City Slickers 3: Billy Crystal Is Even More Insecure About His Age." So I'm off to hopefully get some stuff done, but I'll be back tomorrow with something a little more interesting.

It could be considered very lame if you go somewhere by yourself, tell them it's your birthday, and then expect free stuff. You might want to take it easy on the panhandling.

But I do respect you for taking three days off of work for your uninteresting 29th birthday. Well done. I plan on working when I turn 30 in a few months. I hate the idea of turning 30.

It could be considered lame, but since I already got a free haircut today, I'm going to say it was worth it! (In general, you're right though.)

Yeah, I have to use these furlough hours somewhere, so why not make it on my and around my birthday?
