Kids, my next birthday is less than six months away. That may seem like it’s a long way off, but as I’ve gotten older, it feels like time has moved more quickly. So, really, March will be here before we know it. At this point, I need some opinions. What should I do to celebrate this upcoming momentous occasion?
I kept my last birthday very low key. In fact, I planned nothing. On a whim, I drove down to Raleigh to spend time with friends who made me a cake and treated me to a double feature of Kingsmen: The Secret Service and American Sniper. It was nice, but I think I want to make a big deal out of the next one.
What does March 6, 2016 hold in store? It crossed my mind to have friends get together for a roast. All the people who know me best making fun of me? That sounds like a lot of fun. For them. I can’t help but think of Michael Scott’s reaction when everyone from The Office roasted him. I think we’re all aware that I can dish it out but can’t take it.
I’ve always wanted to spend my birthday at an amusement park. But early March is still winter. And none of the local parks open that early in the year. DisneyWorld would be an option, but it’s a crazy expensive option. I don’t think I could expect that any of my friends would be willing to join me in a trip to Orlando. I’m well loved, but I can’t be that well loved.
So I’m open to suggestions. Karaoke again? Laser tag again? Disney movie marathon?
