Have I grown wings.. as yet?

No, I have grown no wings.
And, today doesn't really seem to be special at all.

I am going to be mean and say, that since boyfriend is not around, there is no excitement in life.. but the truth actually is, that, there is nothing exciting happening. I am gonna go out with two, three (if Kashvi is free) of my real close friends out for dinner. That, we do otherwise also.

I don't feel like, that it is my Birthday today. My boss, Ms. MA, the seniors P,MDR & V, have not even wished me Birthday. Not that I was expecting them to, but, then there was a tiny winy hope that they would. But, then, a wise person has said that, expectation is the killer.

There is no meetha, that has been cooked in my house. On the contrary, there was gheeya for lunch. *Which I don't eat, so basically, no lunch from home either*. Actually, my parents also don't seem too excited about it being my birthday.

Boyfriend, sent me a bunch of roses, and a Black-forest cake last night. Along with it came a card, which started as 'Dear Jaan.... ' and ended with 'I love you'... and I think that it was super funny because, well, because, dad was the first person to read that little card!

The thing that made my day, was the message sent by boyfriend's dad. It is an amazing message, and it just fills me with warmth and love!

And yes, there were the usual calls, meaning, usual people *who would have been killed had they forgotten my birthday* called to wish me! Which is always awesome :D

But honestly speaking, it doesn't feel like that, I have turned 25.
Was I expecting fire works at my Birthday.. well not really, but some sort of excitement somewhere. But, never the less, it is after all my Birthday, and I am sure that this will be a better than the year that has gone by, that there would be loads of stuff to look forward to, and most importantly, like Moo, the cow puts it, hopefully, by next year on my Birthday, I would be getting all ready to take the next big step in life!

So, wings are yet to be grown, as I step into another year and start the quarter life crisis!

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Bday Sakshi.. I think its because we have turned 25.. Exactly a month back, it was my birthday.. Somehow, I wasnt excited abt it.. It was like a normal day.. Perhaps, it is a sign that we are getting old..

How I wish I had taken you out for lunch! Will you take it as rain cheque? Happy Birthday.

Take care

Haha, I have often wondered myself if diminishing excitement over birthdays is a sign that we now have had too many of them in all our years. :D Nevertheless, Happy Birthday to you, dearest Sakshi! :)

Have a fabulous year ahead!

Lovely card uncle! :)

Sakshi said...


Thanks you so much, doc! Though we should be celebrating each day that we live, one day, on which earth was blessed with you should be special, in some sort of a way :)
