GT#4: my birthday

I am a virgo. I was born on September 11.

When I was in grade school, my birthday is a national holiday. That's because I share the specialness (is that even a word?) of the day with then Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos. What a treat for all my classmates, right? No school on my birthday, they just have to attend my party.

I was the first child (of my parents of course) and the first grandchild (on my mother's side) so I was a little bit a prima donna (brat?). I have a party every year but when I turned 4 my parents decided to just give me a present on my special day instead of a party.

Day of my birthday I had a fever. To make me feel better, my mom and dad invited some friends to join us in cutting the birthday cake. As soon as I learned that, I didn't have a fever anymore. A lot of friends came and it turned into a whole afternoon of fun.

That's fun! having fever on your bday, but when it's the cake cutting moment, fever is gone??

We have something in common, first child din ako ng parents ko and first apo sa side ni mother. spoiled ng konti sa mga uncles and aunt, but not sa parents, ehehhee..
