Backstory: One of my very best friends, while I love him dearly, drives me insane like none other. It’s part of his charm really. However, part of his “charm” is posting odd videos of weird teenage boys talking about scented candles, all over my Facebook wall. While, weird and somewhat fascinating at first (seriously, who the F are these kids, why do they talk about scented candles on YouTube, and WHY DON’T THEIR PARENTS MAKE THEM PLAY WITH OTHER KIDS?!) after the first video, I got it. I moved on. My friend didn’t. For the last year, he incessantly posts these videos- sometimes several a day (yeah, there are THAT many) much to my dismay. I started deleting the videos off my wall. We got into a fight over that fact. (Yes, we’re both in our 30’s, fighting over videos of strange teenage boys. I’m aware how weird that is.)
So imagine my *surprise* when I see that he posted one of these kids videos on my page, on my birthday today. Groan. But then, I saw the caption, “Happy Birthday Alisa” and was confused. Did my friend doctor the video? What’s going on?? And then I watched it.
My mouth dropped. I laughed so hard, I think I stopped breathing for a minute. I couldn’t believe what was happening. This creepy kid was wishing ME a happy birthday. OMG.
The best part of this? My friend had to PAY THE KID to make this video! The kid let him know that “candles are expensive” and sent him his pay-pal information. I didn’t ask how much he paid for this, but it was worth every penny. And then some. I mean, random YouTubers are wishing me Happy Birthday. Ahhh… My 34th birthday lives in infamy on YouTube, in the hands of a creepy, teenage boy who spends his days in his room, alone with his dog, talking about scented candles. Enjoy.
