My friend’s birthday behavior is cruel
dear miss: I adore my old friend and the happy life we built together. However, there is a recurring issue on which we periodically disagree: his birthday.
Although I haven’t really enjoyed getting older, I have always enjoyed celebrating my birthday – what a great excuse to see loved ones and share a good time with food and/or drinks!
But my friend sees his birthday from a completely different perspective.
I share life with him, and I am privy to some of the horror stories that were his birthdays. To be honest, they weren’t great. But that life left him decades behind.
