25. Silver Jubilee.
What changes? A lot of things, and actually nothing.
Although I have received less birthday wishes this year, I think the forums and websites that I have registered in, has sent me enough wishes to fill up the void. 🙂 take a look.
Anyway, Last night, for the first time ever, I was not really expecting a JINGBANG about midnight surprise party and cake and all. Not that it doesn’t happen and all. My younger sister Aagna, the biggest culprit in all plans, always make sure I have my birthday party at midnight every single year. I’m sure she knows how much it really means to me. I mean, there was a funny incident few years back that I just remembered, along the same lines.
Its was my birthday, and a night before, I was absolutely angry, sad and frustrated. Well, it was a usual deal, due to my temperament and nature back then. And That time, I was not in mood for cake/candle etc. So a day before I had warned my sister strictly that I do not want a cake, or candle or anything this year around! And I also made it pretty obvious how serious I was when I told her that. She promised nothing like that would happen. With a sigh of relief, I had gone to my favorite place in the house just before midnight. I actually thought I wanted to be left alone. But you gotta trust my little sister, she is a smart ass, capricon btw, so she did came upstairs, with my surprise birthday cake and candle. just that cake was not cake, and candle was not candle.
She used a 500 grams bar of vanilla icecream, used chocolate syrup to write “Happy Birthday Sis” on it, and then had a small diya along with the icecream bar. 🙂 then she came to me as i was sitting on the terrace, sulking. she told me she didn’t break the rules as she didn’t bring cake or candle 😀 and then I had the most irritated yet happy smile on my face. She did know how much it meant to me.
Well, in fact last night as well, she did it. 🙂 This time the partners in crime were elder sister and my brother in law.
They arranged for cake and to my surprise, also a nice small “Teddy” candle. Well, i am sure joy is happy when he reads this.
And so celebrated yet again. With my loved ones near and dear. Missed a few people who I wished to be there, but then again, such is life.
Now, don’t I look like the one about to kill, rather than cut a cake ? 😀
