Normally I'm quite low-key on this holiest of days. To me there's really nothing worse than a birthday party, unless it's a surprise. What kind of sick vindictive bitch could invent such a treacherous form of birthday sabotage? Hey everything's going your way, now we'll just throw you in a room with a group of people that you never really liked that much to begin with. Fuck that. Instead I choose to focus on the spiritual nature of the birthday--the wishes.
Every year the true believers are rewarded with a special birthday wish to use as they see fit. It's your day and you can wish for anything you want (says so in the Bible) be it the death of Cosmo Kramer or the company of a buxom model.
This year I thought I'd share the experience with you, the glorious reader. Help me choose the ultimate birthday wish. I've included my finalists for your perusal.
