Who Can Relate To The Horrors Of Having A Holiday Birthday?
Once every seven years my birthday falls on Thanksgiving. Without fail, everyone except my mother and my husband get consumed by the holiday and let my birthday go by unnoticed; every single year. After 40 birthdays this way, I have gotten used to it. Anyways, enjoy this list of reasons why its sucks to share your birthday with Thanksgiving.
- Thanksgiving brain makes everyone forget its also my birthday.
- My birthday party theme is the same every year.
- I know what I will be having for my birthday dinner every single year, and while turkey and all the fixings is my all time favorite meal...sometimes, I really want a birthday prime rib dinner, at a restaurant, where I don't have to clean anything up.
- I always get pumpkin pie for my birthday cake when someone remembers last minute; and its not that I don't like pumpkin pie, because actually its my fave, it's that I only like my own pumpkin pie. Plus, have you seen how candles melt onto pie? That's why we put birthday candles on a birthday cake! ~And maybe I just want some frosted sugar bomb that I didn't make, once a freaking year.
There ya go. Rant over.
