Birthday Blues

I know it's been a while..but I had to get back! And no, it's not because I ran out of things to draw (yeah, right!) But stuff happens..whether it's a change in routine, exams, not getting admission in a place you wanted to study or missing your best friend's wedding.

So down to business - this week was Mr. Ninja's birthday week. It never ceases to amuse me how less he gives a damn about his birthday. I don't even bother with surprises anymore - but there will always be my home-made cake. Always.

I guess it's all about perspective. When I told Mr. Ninja to enjoy his birthday he asked me why there should be a reason to celebrate being closer to death (err...sombre, much?). I told him he should be celebrating having lived another eventful year in life. And maybe call his mom because this was the day she popped him out (funny how we forget in the midst of all that cake, that our moms were the ones who went through stuff on our birthdays).

Anyway, another key element of birthdays is age. And the best part is, that is flexible too - depending on your perspective. So this is what we will deal with this week.
