As someone who’s birthday happens to be September 11, nobody has hit it on the head quite like America’s Finest News Source The Onion in their article from the first aniversary of the World Trade Center attacks.
“My birthday’s gonna suck for the rest of my life,” Bachman said on the eve of his 29th birthday. “Every year, I’m going to want to go out and have fun, but it’s always going to be inappropriate in light of the meaning of this most tragic of days.”
“It’s probably going to be at least 10 years before I can get back to celebrating like a normal person.” Bachman said. “Then again, that 10th anniversary of the attacks should be a pretty big deal, too. Fuck.”
Personally I’ve never made a big deal out of birthdays, but for everyone else out there with a 9/11 birthday please accept my unreserved “Happy Birthday!”
