Good story! I related so well because I was also the one who always orchestrated my birthday. I’d be so afraid I would be hurt by someone forgetting, I’d go around announcing it early. I would even gently remind my boyfriends throughout the years and hint about what kind of present I’d like.

I’ve written two stories about birthdays you might like (or not ;) )
