I spent it in a hospital bed, surrounded by tubes, probed with needles and forced to deep breathe oxygen.
I talked to every single person I knew on the phone, and got so many renditions of Happy Birthday sang to me that I think I'll be fine if I never hear that song again for a whole 'nother
The nurses on my unit made me a home-made birthday card and everyone signed it. So sweet!
My friends brought me over a whole Sara Lee's Strawberry Cheesecake and I got to eat as much as I could (one slice) and then passed the rest around the unit.
When sent downstairs for an Xray, I flirted with the yummy, cute technicians and told them that it was my Silver Jubilee. So they sang Happy Birthday to me....and strolled me back up after my tests.
I cried when I found out my ex had a new girlfriend already, and got to shoot myself up with expensive painkillers, that gave me a buzz and put me to sleep.
I rounded it all up with an interesting episode of Desperate Housewives and a very funny epi of Grey's Anatomy.
All in all, a strange birthday, definitely the strangest I've ever had.
Happy Birthday to Me!
