Day 33: 7 – “What was your 7th birthday party like?”
Wait! People have birthday parties when they are young? I don’t remember having birthday parties. I sort of remember getting a cake one year, maybe. Or it might have been a dream. I am sure I got a beaten for something frivolous. Maybe it was the year I got my head bashed in by a cast. Who knows?
The perfect birthday for me would be to be able to go away from everyone. I would travel someone exotic like Vail. I would do fun things like not skiing. I would some sushi. No, I meant to say that I would eat a lot of sushi. I would have a nice bottle of red wine from Hungary or France.
Perhaps, I would go to the cinema, if they ever come out with a great film again. The films have sucked hard the past few years, with the exception of the Marvel Films, and as I say that I would exclude Captain Marvel too. It was horrendous. Where was I?
I wouldn’t receive any gifts. I hate gifts. Most people do not know me well enough to buy anything meaningful.
I would go back to my chateau or chalet, put on a nice warm fire, cut some beautiful baguette and cheese, get cozy with the sofa, and open an engaging book.
I would be alone.
