What's the deal with birthday candles? Who the heck came up with the idea? I mean the best thing i look forward to on my birthday is the cake...on my face or in my tummy not withstanding! I love chocolate cake more than anything else in the world...decorate it for me but not with candles! The candles are kill-joy! I'm so happy that i was born on this day and i wanna celebrate it! Just don't remind me how old i am by adding another candle every year...it gets more and more difficult to blow them out every progressive year! How am i supposed to get my wishes granted when you keep making it more and more difficult to blow them all off in a single breath?
Why, for crying out loud, CANDLES?
P.S. Wasn't my birthday that prompted this!
But candles? Why?
