  • Do you think I should try to be cool?

  • Could we try to get, like,

  • a little bit of work done today?

  • Do you really think you could get away with that?

  • - No. - I'm begging you.

  • Hey guys, just wanted to invite you to my birthday party.

  • Birthday, birthday, birthday!

  • Ha ha ha.

  • Whoa, this is super long.

  • Thank you.

  • It's my birthday, so I want a full day of activities,

  • but if you can't make it, don't worry.

  • You can just come to the day 2 go-kart marathon upstate.

  • Ha ha.

  • Cool.

  • No, not cool.

  • Why is one birthday taking up multiple days?

  • So, since my birthday did this weird thing

  • where it's on a Wednesday,

  • I know, Yikestown population Rayray,

  • The population of Yikestown is much higher than that.

  • The weekend before, we're gonna do a go-kart marathon,

  • roller skate rave, disco karaoke, Napa wine chugging,

  • and then, on the actual day, a simple dinner after work.

  • But then, why are there activities for the following week?

  • Well, since it's sucks when you don't have

  • something to look forward to on your birthday,

  • and we'll have done the real party

  • the previous weekend, I wanted to make sure

  • I had a city wide scavenger hunt for after the actual day.

  • Ha ha ha.

  • Fun!

  • No! Not fun.

  • Rekha, this is too much for one birthday.

  • We have lives.

  • Wait a second, what is this thing

  • on the first of the month?

  • So on the first of the month,

  • I like to ring in the month that I was born

  • with a little pizza party.

  • I mean, it is the month that I was born.

  • Celebrating that is very important.

  • Wait, I was born this month, too.

  • We should do a joint party.

  • (crashing) - What the hell?

  • Bye, Brennan.

  • Anyway, if you can do the ghost tour, let me know,

  • I'm doing a head count.

  • What are you talking about?

  • For birthday eve.

  • No, no, no.

  • Ooh, what is birthday eve?

  • It's the night before my birthday.

  • I have to ring in my birthday with my friends,

  • so I can turn a year older in style.

  • I mean, can you imagine

  • the clock striking midnight on your birthday,

  • and you're just alone

  • like some huge, huge loser?

  • -I mean, you get it, Raph. - Yeah.

  • Birthday eve is not a thing.

  • Okay, Trapp, so I presume you're a no for the ghost tour?

  • You keep saying "ghost tour",

  • do you mean ghost town tour?

  • No! They give you a tour of a ghost, look.

  • -It's crazy. - How do you tour a?

  • Oh, I can't wait.

  • But hold on, didn't you have like a sort of

  • birthday party earlier this year?

  • Is this a birthday again?

  • Well, that was one of my birthdays.

  • You see, I had to lie about my age

  • to get into school early.

  • Why?

  • Because, they wouldn't let me go when I wanted to

  • because they said I was too dumb,

  • and I was like, why are you talking about?

  • So this birthday that's coming up is my other birthday.

  • Didn't you have a birthday in December?

  • That was my birthday solstice,

  • welcoming the season in which my other birthday falls.

  • Thank you for clarifying, Rekha,

  • now it makes sense.

  • No problem.

  • You had a half birthday, too.

  • Who celebrates a half birthday?

  • Well I had to find a way to relax with friends.

  • I was getting so busy from all those birthday celebrations.

  • Can't I do one thing for me?

  • Stop it!

  • Why?

  • You can't keep hogging all our nights and weekends

  • with one birthday.

  • I get that it's important to you,

  • but if you stretch one birthday out over multiple days,

  • that's just a way for you to be self centered

  • without taking on any of the costs.

  • Whoa.

  • I'm stressing out my friends with RSVPs, and

  • weekend cabin reservations,

  • and visits to exotic petting zoos

  • that I won't front the cost for,

  • just so I can feel special?

  • That's awful.

  • It's not awful.

  • It's fine, just, can you just tone down the birthday stuff?

  • Okay, got it.

  • Okay.

  • Do you guys want to go check out

  • that diner that just opened up down the street?

  • What?

  • It's birthday Easter, are you kidding me?

  • We're going cliff diving in Seattle,

  • didn't you read the invite?

  • Let's go!

  • It's my birthday, so I'm gonna need time off

  • from here until

  • It's actually until

  • Yup, and here.

  • Yes it is, thank you.

Do you think I should try to be cool?
