This past week I celebrated my birthday. I did not remind anyone about it, so it was very low key. I was planning on doing a little celebration with my family, so the previous week I went to the store to order ice cream. (I actually had to go to several stores to find one that would take the order..)
The day of my birthday was a normal day at school, then after school I hopped on my bike to run errands. On the way home, I stopped at the store. The delivery truck had not come that week, so they had no ice cream, or most goodies. I still wanted something special. Something I don’t usually have, so I bought a coke.
Oh my goodness, the coke was amazing! It was mostly frozen and tasted like a slushy! I don’t think I have ever enjoyed a soda as much as right then!
At home, my brother suggested going to another store to find ice cream, but were unable to find any. I didn’t mind, it was a typical Samoan birthday. No one made a big deal, and I enjoyed the day relaxing on my own. It was a complete Samoan birthday.
