Should you be required to have a cake on your birthday?
Believe it or not, this issue came up on our recent family vacation. My birthday was a few days into the trip and at that point, I was still determined to maintain my healthy eating habits. I knew that giving in to even a small dessert would send my sugar cravings through the roof and the rest of the trip would be spent over-indulging.
So anyway, this became a huge debate with my family and I’m very interested in an un-biased third-party opinion. If it’s my birthday, shouldn’t I be able to choose what we eat? Or am I being a party-pooper by denying everyone else cake because I don’t want it?
In the end, we did buy the cake and I did over-react about not wanting it, but then I had 4 pieces over the next 4 days and as I knew would happen, over-indulged the rest of the trip. Hmm.
