I had to work on my birthday, but it was one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had. My wonderful coworkers surprised me at work with a cake, candle, song, kiss and and flowers from “an admirer.” It was really funny and really heartwarming - very different from the usual busy and grouchy side of them that I see. Well, it was a Sunday and the scary bosses were off, so maybe that had something to do with it.
After work, I went to Yi-Chen’s wedding dinner. Yi-Chen is one of my best friends from high school. One of the most intelligent but impossibly, hilariously silly girls I know. Tonight, there was nothing better than seeing her so happy and so much in love.
Going to work on a birthday and not throwing a big bash to celebrate may sound depressing to some people, but this was one of the best birthdays ever.
