I honestly can’t think of anything worse than this. Having people sing you “happy birthday” is by far the most awkward thing ever. You never know what to do or where to look. You just sit there counting the seconds til its over. I hate it. I usually take Meghan’s approach though. Just fuckin’ stare at the cake, and when absolutely necessary, look up for 0.2 seconds and then back at the cake. I can’t imagine how pissed I would be if, once its finally over, one of my friends just slams my head into the table and knocks me out cold. Nothing worse than that. Nothing.
