Purple Brains (slang) :
(1) Are known to be eccentric, rambling, thoughtful and introspective.
(2) Are just plain dramatic and demented.
(3) have intellect with traces of acerbic wit, pop culture referntia and more.
What happens is, that people generally get together once a year to sing "Jolly Good Fellow" for this one person who they have made their friend and confidante. They throw in some party hats, cake, good times and gifts, on the side. And this here thing is known as a Birthday.
When my friends have this thing coming up, I generally do a lot to make it special. I usually do good. I think I made a mistake there.
Now, I had one of these things too. And I was pretty excited, yes I was.
But I think my friends didn't quite get the memo on that. There was no love and no cheer. Not a single smiling face till I bribed them with chocolate cakes to look awake. They even went through all the trouble of falling asleep in the restaurant. Did I mention, they decided I'm all off a sudden too old for gifts? They say they'll do better from now on. I know they won't even try.
I shouldn't rant about it really, but they wont even read this post so I may as well.
But then again, some of you reading this tried everything you could do under the circumstances. You know, you're the best. People are awfully lucky to have you in their lives.
