And it happens all over again

Come birthday and everything happens again.

Last birthday was nasty. Eggs, bumps and God-knows what. I was stinking. Literally. I made a vain resolution not to 'nasty' others, but for some of my close friends. I kind of stuck on to it and was under the impression that this birthday would be 'light' since I wasn't 'tough' on anyone the whole of last year.

Wrong move.

The first mail went 30 mins before midnight from my neighbor, pretty much sounding like "If you have it in you, come and kick him". 10 or so souls turned up and I managed to convince them not to be hard on me. The 'I've become old' argument works. Trust me.

But an hour later, someone out there was feeling bad that I didn't get bumps and decided to take over. I was hoping against hope that they wouldn't kick me because kicking for birthdays is banned here after a couple of accidents. But then, you put a bunch of smart guys, they'll figure out some way to go about it. I got bumps alright. A dozen eggs followed. Some rotten milk followed. I was smelling like shit. Three baths in two hours after midnight. And all for a birthday!

I'm now sure about one thing. I'm not going to make the 'wrong move' once again.
