When you think about it, our celebration of birthdays is quite misdirected. A person celebrates the day he/she was born. And we do it every year on the same day. Technically, it's not so much a "birthday" as it is an anniversary of your arrival at this planet.
I think the person who deserves the birthday celebration is the mother. After all, she did all the work. She gave me rent-free use of her uterus for nine months. That’s food AND lodging. All I did was show up. I checked out when things got a little crowded. And if that isn’t enough, she still offered 24/7 after-birth support.
So, all props to mom. Happy birthday mom!
