Ten on Tuesday, the birthday edition.

Carole's birthday was Monday (happy birthday, Carole!). I wonder if that had anything to do with her choice of topic for this week…

Ten Ways To Have A Happy Birthday.

  1. Be alive on your natal anniversary. Without this one, nothing else matters. ToT-Button
  2. Drop lots of obvious hints to your family; also to friends and co-workers if appropriate. You don't want anyone to feel badly because they missed your birthday.
  3. Have a family and friends to celebrate with. This one takes some preparation. It generally does not work to attempt to generate a family and/or friends the night before The Big Day. Plan ahead.
  4. During the years when you are collecting family and friends, be sure to chose wisely. Select friends who are considerate, thoughtful, generous, and fun-loving. Rich doesn't hurt, either.
  5. Among the hints you drop should be at least one concerning where you would like to be taken for dinner. Under no circumstances should you have to cook your own birthday dinner.
  6. Keep your expectations under control. If you haven't managed to acquire a Bill- Gates- or Warren-Buffett-level friend, do not expect to be flown to Paris for lunch.
  7. Be appreciative of everything that others do for you on Your Special Day. This will help to encourage a repeat performance next year.

That's it. Sorry I couldn't come up with a full ten. These seven are guaranteed to be foolproof, though 🙂

    Hah! #1, most definitely!
    I’m usually pretty quiet about my bd.. January is picnic packed with the birthdays and I’m just wanting a bit of cave time on my day :^) (although dinner out is a must..#5!)

    Of course it influenced the topic! And my birthday is actually today. You are so right about expectations!

    Those seven do seem to cover it nicely.
