Wednesday Writing Prompt for February 10, 2016

The prompt for today is: Birthdays

This is what I wrote:

Today is my fortieth birthday.  Please, hold your applause, I’ll get enough birthday wishes from people I don’t know on Facebook.  My feelings on birthdays are a solid meh.  Maybe if I had been born in the summer and my birthdays had been marked by cookouts with friends, I might enjoy them more.  But it’s dreary February and most of my friends are hours away.  I think my joy with birthdays waned at the same time as that for Christmas.  When you’re a kid presents are always good.  But when toys give way to things you need like socks, the thrill is gone.
