    Birthdays Aren't For The Birthday People.

    I think one of the worst things of having the worst birthday is that you can't complain about it. You can't even let yourself show any visual signs of being uncomfortable because any sign of not enjoying yourself automatically makes you look like an unappreciative brat. Perhaps...
