    Funny Birthday 21st Birthday "Speech"

    It is my 21st next Tuesday and I have taken next week off work so won't actually be at work for my birthday.

    My workplace has the rule of when it is your birthday you have to bring cakes in for your team, so I have sorted that. I have actually bought enough for the whole floor as I don't like it when only certain people can have the cakes whilst others look on!

    Anyway, I have been moaning about turning 21 for the last couple of weeks, mainly to annoy my co-workers as they are all alot older than me and when I send out my email to inform them of cakes being about, I also want to insert a funny "speech". Something along the lines of how I shall be 21 soon, its the beginning of the end, next step death, etc.

    However, I am having a hard time think of anything to write! Any ideas?

    A couple of things I have pinched fron the net and may adapt to my needs are;

    Turning 21 is supposed to be a joyous and memorable occasion, but throughout the days leading up to the big celebration, I could only think of one thing: It's all downhill from here

    Although I am relatively sure that good things are still to come in my life - jobs, families, senility - when it comes to birthdays, 21 is it. Cultural and social norms pack most of our age-related milestones into the first two decades of our lives. After 21, each birthday is just the mark of getting one year older, one year closer to the end

    Anyone got ideas of things I can add! I want to be funny, not rude though!

    Every place I have worked does this - I thought it was normal!

    Yea, on your birthday you have to buy cakes, generally for your team but our whole department works quite closely so I have got enough for everyone, only spent about £8 though.

    I couldnt find a pink sapphire and diamond ring that I liked, actually, not true. I did find one, it was about £1k though :x

    Peridot proved impossible as it isn't a very expensive stone, so you don't tend to find a high quality ring with it in.

    I was thrilled when I found my ring though, I had been looking at platinum and diamond rings but they were all really expensive. Got this one in the Goldsmiths sale reduced from £600. Its very nice, very classic.

    When I get it I will post a picture :thumbsup:
