14th Birthday!

Posted: August 17, 2015 in Articles

Yesterday we celebrated my fourteenth birthday, and for the first time in a long time, our whole family (minus our sister-in-law and all the aunts and uncles and stuff like that) was together. It was odd, but also fun. We went to a restaurant to eat and then came back home where I received some very nice presents and ate decadent double chocolate cheesecake.

I was given a game called Catan, or the Settlers of Catan, which is a very popular game these days. One of my brothers got me a shirt which is quite nice, although a little scratchy right now – I think I need to wash it a few times. Another one of my brothers bought me a music CD, and I also was given new earbuds, which I desperately needed. I had to apply a lot of tape to my old earbuds to keep them from falling apart completely 🙂 My dad gave me a nice sharpening kit for all of my knives.

Last but not least, I acquired in the regular birthday fashion a long-anticipated present: a 100% felt maroon… wait for it… fez.

It’s best not to ask; I just like fezzes. Anyway, I had a very nice birthday celebration with my family, and I have a new favorite hat. All of my siblings have cautioned and threatened me to keep it in the house only (as if that’s going to happen) 🙂 They pretty much hate it.
