awww..i'm sorry sweetie.
maybe tomorrow will be better for you. it just stinks that this happened on your birthday
/ If it's any consilation- mine really stunk this year too- colin and i have the same birthday...and well....i really thought he was going to propose on our birthday. when it didn't happen, i was really bummed out....did i mention that on our birthday, he didn't even get me a present! he went out to "the store to get some milk" and really went down the road and got me a gift card to starbucks and one to sheridans- he waited until my birthday, and then got me about the most impersonal gift ever, when i was thinking he was gonna pop the question. To make things even more horrible- let's talk about the card he gave me that he tapped the gift cards inside of!
...on the front of the card it had two little old men..one was crying, and the other asked him what was wrong ..to which the guy responded saying "I married a gorgeous hot cheerleader" ...and the other guy asked him why he was crying over that ...and when you open the card it says "I forgot where I live" ...cute card right? WRONG!!! It talked about getting married on the front of it..and on the inside, i could feel something in there (which wound up being the gift cards) and i thought it was a ring
It was just cruel...he didn't even think about it.) Then after that delightful event, we wound up doing what he wanted to do and went downtown to play videogames at Jillians...I was completly miserable- it was aweful. The only good part was Silky O'Sullivan where we ate (that's my favorite resturant on beale street). And he made a really butt of himself there making fun of the singer (who i happened to know
) It was about the worst birthday ever for me (aside from my 16th birthday- that tops them all
) Needless to say, having the same birthday as your SO is definitely not always a good thing- especially when they screw up yours. Did i mention, I spent about a month trying to come up with the perfect gift for him- he is really big into grilling and anything to do with bbq or things of that nature....I ordered him all really nice stuff for his grill, his own personalized steak press and i made a basket filled with lots of goodies i thought he'd like...all sorts of speciality jerky,cheeses, desserts, seasonings, new kitchen towels (he needed them), and other little guy things related to cooking) and you know what he did when I gave it to him- he said that he wished i hadn't got him anything for the grill...and that he didn't want "kitchen junk" .....keep in mind, i spent a month on his gift, and he waited until our birthday to go out and get me a :censor::censor::censor::censor::censor::censor::censor: gift card...uhhh...that man!
So yeah, I definitely understand crappy birthdays. I'm sorry you had such a rotten one. Maybe tomorrow we can have an honoary birthday for you here on tcs??? how would you like that?
i'll start a thread for you if you'd like!
