What is a birthday thing?

A birthday thing is a thing I love [as opposed to a thing I hate].  See, I hate lots of things, but talking about the things I hate [shocker!] doesn’t make me feel good.  Well, it might make me feel good for a minute, the way trash talking sometimes does, but then it always ends up making me feel bad.

So birthday things are things that I love: the best 10 percent of my life. Plus a tiny bit of whining, because I’m just trying to be honest.

What I’ve figured out in the last four years of writing Birthday Things is that most of my birthday things aren’t things. They’re people and moments and shared memories.

So that is why I keep writing. I hope you’ll keep reading.
