MEMORIES OF BIRTHDAY PARTIES PAST

  1. Getting sent to sleep in my room while my friends all stayed in the basement because we were being too loud.
    Age 10
  2. Giant inflatable Slip-N-Slide.
    Ages 16 and 17
  3. Having to call my mom to get approval to watch 'A Walk to Remember' at a friend's party.
    Age 13
  4. Getting grounded because my friends watched 'Bruce Almighty' while I pretended to be asleep. I knew I'd get in trouble for not calling and getting permission to watch a PG-13 movie.
    Age 12
  5. Thinking it was a good idea to project the unedited version 'Wedding Crashers' onto my garage for a fun movie night.
    Age 16. Boobs everywhere. Neighbors complained. THE IRONY.
