Someone once said that there’s no common cure for birthdays. Hear hear! Ever notice that once you reach a certain age, birthdays become more of a cringeworthy event? On the opposite end of the spectrum of unwelcomed birthdays, what is invited and so zealously at that, is birthday cake. I think the genius who decided to celebrate birthdays with cake, might not have discovered a cure but certainly found the best antidote. When the cake is brought in, we stop noticing the imposing number of candles and start focusing on the delicious thoughts of cake-pleasure we’re about to receive only because we’ve added yet another digit to our age. I call that – a fair trade.
