Today I turn 24. I had in mind to reflect on what i had hoped to achieve and what I actually did achieve. But I’m in a bad mood (sort of), I’m sick and all alone at home. Instead I’m going to reminisce about birthday things that has never happened for or to me.
I’ve never gotten a birthday card
Not from lovers. Not from friends. Not from family. Last year, my mum wished me happy birthday on Facebook. And we live in the same house. Go figure!
Never gotten birthday balloons
What am I, 6? But still, a girl can hope, right?
Never had a birthday cake.
At least not one I can remember. I supposedly had a cake when I turned 1 but since I can’t remember it and there are no pictures to prove it, I’m sticking to my story, I’ve never had a birthday cake.
And as a result, I’ve never had to blow out candles
No birthday presents
How I’ve longed for those presents wrapped up in shiny paper. Still do. But alas it’s not meant to be, huh?
Last but not the least
No birthday party!
I heard you correctly, I had one for my first birthday. Well, I still don’t believe you as do I the cake. I HAVE NEVER HAD A BIRTHDAY PARTY!!!
