Party of the Day #2445

There is a picnic waiting in the future, but we had a smaller something for my birthday tonight, as well. Laurel brought a mango tart, the fruit splayed out like a blooming rose, with six modest candles ready for a wish.

Lighting enough candles to match a person’s age becomes an inconvenience and then a fire hazard as they grow older, but I think it might be nice to count up with each decade – 6 for your 26th birthday, 10 when you reach 30, then back to 1 again as your next chapter begins.

Birthday parties are a good excuse to pull together friends you usually see in different circles. Mitch and Brittany both made it tonight, and the five of us made a spirited chain of miscommunications in Telestrations – one of those games that I feel can characterize a group nicely.

I’ll always miss people, but I’m looking forward to Sunday.

your last day
