It was a wonderful birthday that I got to celebrate with all of my friends!
So many people who were just happy to be around me! They enjoyed my company! They liked my jokes! It was all really good. It was all too good.
I couldn’t stop thinking about how this has to be the pinnacle of friendship. I have reached the mountain top as far as being loved by friends goes. The only place to go was down.
They’re going to get tired of my garbage eventually.
Any day now, these people are going to stop liking me.
I can’t trust them.
What a terrible birthday.
