February 5, 2008. No, it’s not my birthday. Not yet. Last Monday, I went to a close friend’s birthday party at McDonald’s. It had been a while since I experienced a McDonald’s birthday party. I know it was a novel idea some time back to hold fastfood birthday parties with elder teens, but it’s only now that I was able to attend one. It was a respite, actually, as I had just come from a full day of picketing and rallying in the Senate and in UP. It was quite hilarious seeing everything play children’s party games.
