Happy Birthday to You!October 13, 2012
Does having people sing “Happy Birthday to You” actually make your day any happier? I find it a bit embarrassing myself.
I have a hard time figuring out why, I just know that I feel like “oh brother not again” or something like that. Not because I don’t think people are being genuine, but I think the exercise is a bit silly.
I guess that embarrassment over the Happy Birthday song has to do with the fact that everyone’s attention is now on me, because it’s my birthday, and everyone is singing for ME.
ETA: it’s not our birthday or anything, but we found it in drafts and it looks to be a complete thought.
