on birthdays and other embarrassments.

I hate my birthday. I know it is cheesy and sort of melodramatic to feel this way (“oh look at me, I hate to be looked at!”) but I always have. They’ve improved since I switched from a partner who forgot them to one who agonizes over everything he does for me, but I still hate the premise of being looked at and talked to by everyone who happens to know. But while I hate my own birthday, I do love celebrating when other people have them.

I have brought tears to the eyes of old ladies with their grandchildren’s christening cakes, I’ve made a sister literally shout out with joy at the sight of her younger sibling’s graduation cake (it was a little much), and I’ve made ridiculously debaucherous 21st birthday cakes which I’m certain got big laughs. These are all events I’d have hated had I been central to them, but which were great when all I did was sculpt the cake and step aside.
