Happy Big X0 to Me


[Credit: favin.com]

It doesn't feel like my birthday but it is.

I would be spending it meaningfully later.

Early in the morning, I would be accompanying my mother to the hospital for a check-up. My cute mum has even forgotten that it would be my birthday till I reminded her. She declared that everything would be on her later when we go out. This is a nice change and I wonder what we would be doing after the check-up.

Then from evening till night, I would teach my classes. I doubt I would get angry with these teenagers.

For the past 8 years or rather, for as long as I started working, my birthday would always fall on my off day. If it doesn't, I would apply for a birthday leave and either go out or simply slack at home till the appointed meet up timing with friends or date with the hubby. As I was in the teaching line (still am, albeit part-time), there is a tendency that kids would make me angry and I simply refused to get angry on my birthday. Call me pampered and prissy; I like to do it this way.

So there you go, a rather nondescript birthday considering it is my big X0 but I'm contented.


This is a scheduled post.

  3. Happy Birthday!!!! It isn't the 25th here yet, so technically I'm sending b-day wished early--a first for me. =)

    And about the big X0, my brain tells me it's the big X9!!! Have I finally gotten so forgetful that I'm wrong about numbers??? I'm sorry my friend. I hope you have a beautiful birth-day and weekend!

    Joey,
    Thanx for asking. I didn't get angry with my students but the whole day before work was simply a test of my patience what with being at the hospital with my mum for 7 hours.

    Oooh... Happy belated birthday to him. Now you would always remember my birth date. lol... People who are born on 25 May are special. There was this drama serial which had onf of the main characters being born on that date and he's supposed to have Lady Luck perpetually shining on him. I don't that on me but I'll still like to think it's unique.

  18. Lisa,
    Your comment went wonky. It was on my email but not on blogger to be approved and all of a sudden, it came back!

    Hubby is in town and yep, we had a lovely meal the next day. =)
