Some of my family is over, in the back yard. I’m pretending like I don’t hear them. The get together is for me. I genuinely didn’t want it, but my mother insisted on throwing it. She also threw my high school graduation party behind my back. Not a surprise party, she just did it behind my back because I told her I absolutely did not want one. The morning of my graduation she casually mentioned it was planned for that evening.
I can also hear them congratulating my younger, more hopeful and bright eyed cousin about something. I didn’t want this party, but that doesn’t negate the fact that this party is for me and my many accomplishments. I’m going out there now to stop all of this nonsense about congratulating people who not only are not me, but also do not even have good bangs.
