Wow! Everyone, thank you so much! I was so surprised to find this thread!
I had a blast on my birthday this year. Got all dressed up, went out, sung my little karaoke heart out
...actually offered a "job" lead singing for a local band that happened to be at the bar! So sadly, this may be my last post, as I have decided to give up nursing to pursue my lifelong dream to...well, sing in a local band @ local bars:icon_roll .
Of course I am kidding.
I had a pretty good time, though. Other highlights include: a man I've never seen before taking my lit cigarette out of my hand, taking a couple drags off it, giving it back to me, then giving me a backrub, as some sort of thank you, I suppose.
This entire exchange took place without words, which made the whole thing that much more creepy. Oooh! And yet another one of my friends confiding in me that my ex tried to sleep with her after she gave him a ride home during a time in which I'm pretty sure we were together. Lovely. Good thing I'm totally over him
Again, thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. Completely unexpected.
