What I really want for my birthday this year

to sleep in past 6:03 a.m.

cake for breakfast

to finish my iced coffee before the ice melts

a day free of ads for wrinkle serums and smoothers

common sense gun legislation

new jeans that fit without having to try them on first

for someone else to potty train my toddler

to lip sync battle with Paul Rudd

dinner I didn’t cook

a summer without sunburn

to use the bathroom without interruptions

drivers who know what to do at four-way stops

campaign finance reform

internet prices that stay at the promo rate

24 hours before my chin hairs grow back

a Roy Kent bobblehead

unlimited buckets of buttered movie popcorn

a moratorium on unsolicited parenting advice

a ban on book bans

*NSYNC reunion concert
