I don’t ask for much, well maybe I do; but the point is I don’t expect much. I don’t expect the world to revolve around me, as I learnt a very long time ago that things don’t work that way; however I do expect the world to revolve around me just once a year, and that’s on my birthday, which happens to be today.
Now there’s nothing you can do about this year – this year’s birthday is nearly over – but just an FYI for future years, I don’t want to have to deal with stuff on my birthday. I don’t even want to go to work on my birthday so don’t make it more unpleasant by throwing up things for me to deal with. Today started with a flood in the laundry which I had to mop up before I could feed the cat (who’s such a delicate wee flower he didn’t want to stand on the wet floor) and just to book end the day I had to do the same thing when I got home and went to feed the cat (after rescuing said cat from the garage).
I don’t want to deal with stuff like that on a normal day let alone my birthday. Also throwing in a friend being threatened so that I’d worry about her? Also not cool.
You’ve got a year to sort it out Universe, I expect better. (though I do acknowledge my great colleagues who bought me a card & choccies and took me out to coffee, my friends who texted and emailed, my flatmate who decorated (photos to follow) and bought bubbly and my parents who took me out to dinner)
PS I hope you were paying attention when I made my wish and that wishes made while blowing out a candle on a complementary cake count.
