Yep, here's what happened. This is how my birthday really went:
I was just riding my bike with my dad, my uncle and a friend and we were on our way home, when suddenly, I went flying, fell of my bike (which just had a new chain got smashed or knocked out of place if I recall) and went across the road. I received cuts on my upper-lip, a sore nose, one or two grazes on my face and a slight scab on my between my eyebrows. Next thing you know, I look like an extra from The Walking Dead
. I was crying in pain and I also received bruises on my left shin and my right knee. I was rushed to hospital and given x-rays to see if there were any injuries. So much of a good birthday...
Still, on a lighter note, when I left the hospital, I had a chip shop meal for lunch and some Chinese food for supper. I received two - yes, count 'em - two new additions to my retro-vintage figure collection:
*Buffy Summers from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
*Jayne Cobb from Firefly
And as part of my collection of Funko POP figures, I received Malcom 'Mal' Reynolds from Firefly
which came today.
And that's how my (unusual yet turbulent but rather surprising) 24th birthday went. Thanks for all your messages and gifts, they really did cheer me up and now I am currently going through every single one of them. Thanks again.
