Well, it's my birthday, too. Tomorrow, I mean. Today is my birthday-eve.
In honor of the fact that I'm turning another year older tomorrow, I thought it might be fun to wax nostalgic and talk about the best and worst birthday celebrations I've had in my life. I have many, many stories to share along that vein, but I'll narrow it down to just two.
1998. Before the Y2K scare, before Windows XP, and just a few short years before Dubya was in office. I was turning 13, which was a monumental day for me. I was finally becoming a teenager! I'm not sure what I was so excited about, because achieving teenage status didn't grant me any special privileges. My grandparents gave me a remote control boat that year, and at the time it was the Holy Grail of birthday presents. It wasn't until the next morning that my parents took me to a place where I could try it out. My mother was watching her friend's two kids for the day, and when we packed things up to go home from the pond, one of the kids busted off the antenna of the controller, rendering it useless. I hadn't had it for a full day yet, and it was broken! I was crushed. I fixed it eventually, but I held a grudge against the kid who ruined it for a couple of years.
2005. I was passing the two-decade mark of 20 years old. The Girlfriend Soon To Be Known As The Boss and I had moved in together just a couple of days before. We didn't have most of our furniture yet, and so we spent a couple of nights with our mattress on the floor. We had spent the day together, unpacking and arranging things in the apartment. That night, we were fooling around on the bed, and things were getting hot and heavy. She whispered in my ear, "Are you ready for your birthday present?" I won't go into much more detail than that, but that I night I received my first blowjob. There hasn't been a better birthday present since.
There isn't much planned for my birthday this year. I wasn't able to get the day off from work, so after I get out The Boss and I are heading over to my parents house for a barbecue. My two sisters should be there, which I am excited for because I haven't seen them in a while. If the weather cooperates, The Boss and I will be taking a day trip on Sunday to a couple of hiking trails in North Conway, NH. Needless to say, I won't be present in the Blogging world until the first part of next week.
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
P.S. If anyone is wondering where to send my birthday presents (hint, hint, hint), just shoot me an e-mail.
P.P.S. Just joking.
P.P.P.S. But if you want to send me something, I'll totally give you my address.
