~Today is Jen's first birthday~
The doctor told my parents that I was supposed to be born on the 8th, but yes I did come a day late, sorry. On the 9th my parents went to this 5 star seafood restaurant downtown. We use to leave in Greenfield so we were nearby all the city things. They went to the restaurant for no reason just cause they felt like it was necessary. Explains why I like seafood a lot. My grandparents both from my mom's and dad's side were there that week too, and I'm pretty sure that they went to the restaurant with us. My grandparents flied from Russia just for me. After the restaurant everyone went back home. My parents said all they did was clean, prepare my room and watch TV. Very uneventful. But night time came and they rushed to the hospital. Then on October 9, 1999 a little Jennifer Anne Lerner was born.
~ Today is Jen's favorite birthday memory~
My best birthday ever just happened recently. It was October 9th, I finally turned 17. My parents woke me up with balloons and money for shopping spree. They later took me to my favorite breakfast place, First Watch. The wait was terribly long, but once we sat down I order my favorite meal, avocado toast. We went home after and I had nothing planned till the evening. One of my best friends wanted to have a small bonfire with a couple people, so why not go because I had nothing to do. It was around noon and I had till eight for the bonfire. I tired to call some of my friends to hang before, but they kept saying they were busy. It was strange that all my friends were not available. I thought they forgot my birthday. I end up sitting in my placid car in a nearby parking lot. Just wanted to get a respite away from all people. As I sat and waited, I had time to think in pensive quietness. It was about eight now, time to drive to the bonfire. I get to my friends house and there were so many cars in driveway. I was confused and walked to the backyard. All my friends run out all at once yelling, "Happy Birthday Jen!" Best birthday, surprise party ever.
