Birthdays are mostly an excuse to make the day all about yourself, which is really the best. (The fact that I’m writing about birthdays on my birthday? TOTAL COINCIDENCE.) Here are some TV birthday celebrations I really wish I could’ve crashed, I mean, been invited to.
Troy Barnes’ 21st Birthday
Learning that you’re actually a year older than you think you are is awful, and having to be the responsible one by driving your drunk friends home is even worse, but being a good friend? That’s priceless. I GUESS.
Tina Belcher’s 13th Birthday
Turning 13 isn’t as memorable as a Sweet 16, but it can be, if you get your dad to shave his moustache so your crush can come and slow-dance with you and give you your first kiss in a burger place lit by a disco ball while surrounded by middle school classmates and transvestites named Marshmallow.
Tami Taylor’s 30-something Birthday
Coach tries to throw the ideal birthday for Tami, complete with a hotel room and without a visit to Applebee’s, but duty calls her away. I’d take her place, though.
For Nadia Chaudhury’s birthday, she went horseback riding, ate BBQ, got the Friday Night Lights box-set, and will go to a dinner to be determined tonight.
