Saturday I turned another year older, wiser, and more sensible. Right? Right. Overall, the day was a success and I feel very lucky to have such wonderful family and friends. But what would an event involving yours truly be without some over-analysis and moments of desperation? With that, I present, a few selected birthday highs and lows...
Birthday Highs and Lows
High: The 12 Cookie Monster cupcakes my friend J brought over to my apartment!
Low: Eating 12 Cookie Monster cupcakes in my apartment.
High: Knowing that I'll never join the 27-club!
Low: "Carrie. You're not famous. Why do you care about the 27-club?"
High: My birthday fell on a Saturday this year!
Low: My birthday fell on the day Whitney Houston died this year.
High: New experiences, like the Korean spa I decided to try out!
Low: Learning what makes Korean spas unique. For example, the "no swimsuits allowed in the pool" rule.
High: The dozen cupcakes that my friend A brought to my birthday happy hour!
Low: Realizing, halfway through devouring a cupcake that, not only was I eating alone, but Adele's "Someone Like You" was playing ominously overhead.
