How Many Candles?

The problem with being this old is that there’s just too many darn candles burning on top of your birthday cake. I mean, there’s enough to set off the fire alarms in the office conference room already! But some brave soul decided to risk the fire alarm and bought me a birthday cake, which we gathered in the conference room to share this afternoon. That was really cool.

They also gave me a birthday card that someone had passed around the office – behind my back – and had everyone sign it.
