Wasn't I just celebrating my 16th birthday a few months ago? Ten years goes by so fast.
This does not mean that I am dreading my birthday. You know me, birthdays are my thing. I think they should be a huge deal, full of presents, and surprises, and no cleaning or chores, or work. In my mind, it is a day to celebrate with family and friends, if possible, and do something out-of-the-ordinary.
I am definitely not dreading becoming 26, I am just a little in shock that I am going to be 26. That sounds old. My brothers are 20 and 22; that seems so young, you know, since I am at the mature age of 26.
I have never really dreaded my birthday, mostly because I don't think of the age, just the party.
What about you? Has their been a birthday that you just dreaded? What age was it?
