Because COVID-19

A friend of ours is planning an outdoor birthday get together in her backyard with family and a few close friends. We offered to bring a cake. But then we decided that, rather bringing a birthday cake with a bunch of candles for her to blow out, we are going to pick up some cupcakes and put a single candle on the one we give to her.

Because, you know, COVID-19.76648169-B6DB-4D18-837E-E3BA064419F2

    My twin sons (adult) had their birthday at the beginning of the month. We had a cake with candles and they both blew on it. Then the family ate the cake. I didn’t even think about COVID until the candles were out.

    By contrast, I got a cupcake for my recent b-day.

    Your post reminded me of a Big Bang Theory episode. I looked for the BBT clip where Sheldon told Amy he would still like a slice of cake as long as her relative did not spit on the cake. I was unsuccessful.

    I really never liked the concept of blowing on a cake that was going to be shared, so I jumped on the cupcake wagon for my daughters’ birthdays as soon as cupcakes became popular.

    All the things that we normally do are busted by Covid, so the abnormal is the new normal šŸ˜

    Something that had never crossed my mind, and I’d attended a lot of birthday parties!

    I seen the suggestions of a hair dryer, emptying the air out of a (non helium) balloon, and a squirt gun with good aim. It is really kind of a weird tradition when you think about it.
