We have a tradition in our family: when it’s your birthday, you get to be the center of attention for the whole day. You get to make the important decisions
by yourself, like what you want to eat, how you spend the day, and when you will open your presents. Rules get bent in your favor. You don’t have to share with anyone. You always get to go first. You are the center of attention and everyone wants you to be happy. For that one day, you sit at the top of your world.
