As you know, I ended up not having a birthday party as I was originally planning to do. For the actual birthday, I didn’t want to do much of anything. I told Igwe that we should just go to The Cheesecake Factory and call it a night. We both love The Cheesecake Factory, and we go there so much that we don’t even look at the menu before ordering.
Before dinner, I first stopped at Toby’s house. Toby is my little cousin and we share the same birthday. He was supposed to be born in April, but he came 3 months early on my birthday. He’s 12 now, and I still can’t understand why he came 3 months early … and on my birthday. Anyway, I went over to the house to give him a cake and he decided he’d like to follow us to dinner.
I sincerely regret not taking my “real” camera. I thought it’d just be me and Igwe and maneuvering the camera to take pictures of both of us would have been a hassle. So I took these pictures with my phone. I promise to do better next time. On the plus side, it was really nice hanging out with him. We don’t get to hang out enough at all.
Thanks for reading. One of the things I hope to do this year is show you more pictures. Walahi, being anonymous for so long has made me so used to not posting pictures (or taking pictures). I always remember after the fact. I envy people that have so many pictures of themselves on their blogs. I will do better.
Oh, how could I forget to mention that Funmie came to my job to surprise me with cake. Does your friend do that for you? I didn’t think so. Well, my Funmie does. Thank you, Funmie!
