I like making wishes.
Not with magical genie lamps (although I’m game if one surfaces).
But during that time of the year when it’s respectable and even expected.
The only thing better than making that wish and blowing out those candles… is doing it more than once.
Luckily, I have found that birthday celebrations are never a one day affair.
Inevitably there several bday “parties,” one on one birthday dinners and belated congratulations.
Tonight was one of those nights.
A friend I hadn’t seen in 6 months flew in for a visit and took me out for some belated birthday dinner and sangria drinking.
Towards the end of the meal, we decided on a slice of tiramisu.
I’m not sure if friend asked the waiter or the waiter had a unique sense of intuition (still a mystery to me), but I do know that the cake came out with a candle in it.
I got to make my wish again.
Hope it comes true.
