I am bad at Birthday posts. Or for that matter, any day-specific post. Simply because when I feel that I have to write, I can’t. Some issues I have in life.
But I did turn 28 yesterday (Gasp!), and considering I was not expecting anything surprising this birthday, I think it deserves a special mention, and especially on the blog, because, well, it is all thanks to this page. Starting with a call bang at midnight from the one who, well, is known to stay up at weird hours, followed by a message at 5:53 AM, from someone who ‘happened’ to be up at that time, to the beautiful bunch of orchids delivered to my work place (and got me suspicious looks from the people on the floor, and also gave me fodder to bug The Dude), and sent in by these guys I wouldn’t have known if not for the blog, and the amazing posts (which still make me very very sentimental, guys, what have you done to me?) it was one big, awesome day!
And of course, I also had my 24 hours of brattiness (I am usually angelic, really), being waited upon hand and foot by The Dude, having a meal prepared at home comprising solely of what I like, receiving gifts and flowers and chocolates from Mom and Lil Sis, receving all those calls and messages from people who matter, and in short, making a huge deal about turning 28, which actually is not even a cool age to be. And amidst all this, I even forgot for a while that I was at work during the day (No, I didn’t, some sympathy please?). But I did go to sleep, as one happy person. And getting back to work today seemed much easier than usual!
Thanks for all the wishes people, in a very unbelievably short time, you’ve all become part of my life, and I sincerely am very thankful for that! And before I get teary eyed, and soppy out here (which will definitely not suit the general tone of this blog!), I will leave, and return with a post soon.
