YES IT'S MY BIRTHDAY
AND SUSAN'S TOO
Despite looking very similar and sharing a birthday, there's no truth to the rumor that Susan Kim and I are twins.
Go figure... we're not even related. Can you believe it?
Okay really, we do share this day, February 25, as the date of our birth. If you were hoping I'd reveal my lovely co-anchor's age herein, you can stop reading. Not gonna happen. If you care, I'm 34.
Truth be told, I really hate my birthday. It's got nothing to do with getting older or feeling older, or aging really whatsoever. Those things are inevitable, and I feel them no more today than any other.
No, it's really the embarrassment of people coming around all day and wishing me a happy birthday. I guess I never really got why the birthday is any sort of big celebration for the individual. After becoming a parent myself, I've really learned to appreciate that the people for whom birthdays ought to be celebrated are mom and dad.
My birthday was a far bigger day in the lives of my parents than it was for me, right? All I did was show up, and if I recall... I didn't really have much to do with that. Between my last birthday and this one, all I've done to achieve accolades is survive another 365 days. Congratulations to me.
