Question of the Week: Birthday

How do you react when people sing "Happy Birthday" to you in a restaurant?

I act like I'm embarrassed. But really, it's kind of nice to be the center of attention for the 30 or so seconds that it takes for the waiters to sing their song. Unfortunately, it's usually not just a quick "Happy Birthday." It's some made up ditty that is unique to their restaurant. And usually, there's a lot of loud clapping and hollering. This just manages to draw all kinds of unnecessary attention from the other patrons. So yeah, embarrassed, but a little egotistical at the same time.

*Question of the Week comes from The Book of Questions by Gregory Stock, Ph.D.
