5 Things That Suck About Your Birthday As A Grownup

  1. Birthday punches.
  2. When you're dining out, and suddenly a phalanx of staff comes around the corner carrying a cake with WAY too many candles and some sort of birthday sombrero.
  3. When kids ask, "How old are you?" -- and when I tell them, yell, "Ooh, that's old!"
  4. The sad realization that you really can't hold a cool backyard party with all of your friends, and still have your mom clean up afterwards like you used to.
  5. No more piƱatas.
