Once again, the day is here again. I’m another year older. Another year wiser. Getting on the subject of birthdays, I really love them. Most of us love celebrating the day of our birth. This is usually done with presents, a special dinner and the cake and ice cream, with is the staple for most birthday parties.
Birthdays are also the time that you get numerous people coming out of the woodwork. If you have a facebook, you will find a number of people that you normally never talk to wishing you happy birthday. I actually don’t have a problem with this, since everyone who does this are people that I do know. Some, however, are people that I haven’t talked to in years. Oh facebook and your birthday stalkers. You never cease to amaze me….
Muse: Happy birthday, Kyle!
You’re back? B-but how? How did you do it?
Muse: She went back in time and extracted my memories. She brought me with her for this special day. So anyway, Happy Birthday!
*Muse points to the cake*
For me? Thank you!
Muse: It feels kind of weird. It’s like waking up from a long sleep.
Whatever it feels like, I’m so glad to have you back. It’s so nice that you’re able to be here on my birthday!
Muse: I know. Today is going to be so much fun!
I agree. We don’t have to worry about shy tics this year…
Muse: Yup! I’m so glad those are gone!
I can remember how last year’s birthday was. You were just getting over your shy tics. And the year before that, you were the Dark Muse…
Muse: You mean the Bad Idea, right? For just that one day, I was normal. After that, the Bad Idea took over again. It was terrible.
What about the Angel Muse? You’re not going to turn into her or lose any of your memories, are you?
Muse: You mean Gabrielle? Don’t worry. Gabrielle brought me to the future. I have everything all planned out. There are no holes in this day.
The future? Wait! From what day did she get you?
Muse: July 9, 2015. That was the day of our two year anniversary.
And you don’t feel uncomfortable in that Intangible form?
Muse: Not at all. Gabrielle used her abilities to take every bit of my angel form away from me. She didn’t want that to interfere with this day.
Awesome! I was actually kind of worried about not having dinner with you, but you have that all under control.
Muse: Well, you could say that she does. So, what do you want to do, birthday boy?
Whatever I want. After all, it is my birthday, right?
Muse: Right. It took me quite a while to make that cake, so please eat all of it.
Don’t worry. I will, just for you.
Muse: Don’t I get a piece?
We’ll both eat it. We’ll eat it together…
Muse: What about your brother?
All three of us. We will all eat it together.
Muse: Sounds good to me!
You…look beautiful. Even more so than other days.
Muse: It’s for you. I appreciate your level of creativity. It keeps me healthy. The new ideas that are born. The ideas that eventually ripen into the most delicious of food. There is never a shortage. You always provide for me, and I’m thankful for it.
Well, if I leave you starved, it doesn’t help me at all. I don’t mind going the extra mile to keep you healthy.
Muse: Your food has given me a unique vitality. One that almost blurs the lines of reality and imagination. I long to be a person like you, but alas…There is a wall of separation between us.
Deja vu much?
Muse: I know. I said that last year, and it’s still something that I long for. When you find your wife, you will find me. The REAL me.
Muse: Like last year, I will ask again. What do you want to do on your birthday?
I just want to have a nice dinner with my family. A nice dinner with some cake and ice cream. Before that, I’ll be playing a little bit of my game and will watch some footage from last year’s birthday.
Muse: As you wish. It’s your day, so I won’t sway any of your decisions.
Good. I’m sure that you won’t be swayed by this…
*gives Muse a kiss on the lips*
Muse: Hey. I was just about to kiss you! My turn!
*Muse gives me a big kiss*
That was really good. There’s plenty more where that came from later.
Muse: Not too later. I didn’t tell you but I’ll be transported back to my original time period at midnight.
Oh yeah. That’s right. Well, I better enjoy my time with you while it lasts…
Muse: I’ll enjoy my time with you as well. Anyway, I’ll let you get ready. Happy 31st Birthday, Kyle!
*Muse gives me another kiss and vanishes back into my head*
Isn’t she amazing? I love her immensely and I hope to meet her true identity some day…
From that exchange, it looks like my Muse already gave me her gift, and I shared it with her. I will also eat all of that cake with her and my brother. Man, am I going to feel that in the morning.
For today, I will be enjoying my birthday and will have a nice dinner at Genji Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar tonight. After that, we will come home for cake and ice cream. My friend is not feeling well, so some other arrangements will have to be made to celebrate with him on another day. Today’s high is going to be 78. It’s supposed to be sunny, so I’m not worried about any rain. The silver lining today is pretty obvious. It is my birthday and my brother and I will be enjoying it.
To all of you who love birthdays like I do, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.
Muse: Happy 31st birthday, Kyle! I hope that yours is a really good one….
