Well, my birthday came and went. It feels kind of surreal to think that I’m already 22. Sometimes I wonder to myself, “Man, where did the time go? It seems just like last week I was 16!” . One of the things I’ve come to realize as I grow older is that people need to cherish each and every moment, because they can never get those moments back. Hindsight is always 20/20.
I was rather suprised that the only person to actually wish me “happy birthday” on my birthday was my friend Jessica. She called and left a message talking about being an “old fart”. Every year I keep expecting a suprise party since I’ve never had one. I think that when people actually try to throw me a suprise party, I’ll have to try hard to act suprised because I expect one for some odd reason. Thats partially the reason why my family forgot my 17th birthday, because I never mentioned it, and no one remembered. I didn’t mention it was coming because I thought their silence meant they were planning a suprise party. Nope, they just plain forgot. Oh well, they’re human after all, and I still love them.
So, I guess this year, my birthday fell on the same day as the Super Bowl, whoop-de-friggin-do. I’m not much of a fan of football, and was more interested in the commercials. And I must say, that this year, the commercials sucked big time. Yeah, the only good ones were the ones about misunderstanding (the broker who was thought to be robbing the convenience store, and the boyfriend who looked like he was going to kill the cat). But nothing beats the commercials from back when it was the Cowboys vs. the Bills for like 5 years straight. Those were hilarious.
