Seems like there’s a birthday every week here at work..and the routine is pretty much always the same..
Gather people into the large conference room after working hours and light sparklers on fire while singing Happy Birthday..and then gorging on delicious cake from Canelle, Sugar Daddys, or La Cigale..
My question is, what happened to birthday candles? Now that I’m thinking about it, I’ve never been to a birthday party outside of work..so I don’t know if the SkyBaresque sparklers are only used because no one can be bothered to light more than 20 candles, or because the Lebanese just do everything better…
The best part of a birthday cake is licking the icing off of every candle, no?!?! Can’t exactly do that with sparklers..well I guess you could, but that would be..well..just..wrong.
What do you think?
