My dad got my a racing cycle when i was in 4th grade. Back then there were very few geared cycles being sold and geared cycles were just launched in the market. My feet hardly touched the ground and i only could use it from my 6th grade. Later on I managed to win a couple of races as well.

Oh yeah i almost forgot : Birthdate - Feb 4th.

Even though one would like a lot of things for their birthday, secretly all of us like surprises, be it of cutting cake or even a small gift especially from your loved ones and at a time when you least expected it.

It is hard to spring up a surprise year on year but it is good to keep thinking of ways to do the next one!

Actually, I am one of the few who don't like surprises. May be some kind of control freak tendency, don't know.

I hate Birthdays!! Yes I said it - I do not like that one day every year, people call me to wish me Happy Birthday. Many of them wish because they just have to. I do not like cake cutting at all. I like to eat them but the whole tradition of blowing candles, singing the birthday song - I just do not enjoy it. People ask me why I do not like these things - Since "normal" people should like these things - I simply do not have an answer for this. I do not like me getting so much attention once every year - I treat my birthday as any other day. Many of my friends give big parties etc to celebrate it but I do not even feel like celebrating mine. But of course in order to blend in the society you have to do certain things.

What would I like on my birthday - Nothing! No cake cutting. No waking me up at mid night to blow out some candles. I just want everyone to wish well being for my family - thats it.

P.S - Am I going off topic here? Is there anyone "abnormal" like me here? Please PM me - we can be good friends I guess
