Thai Days: birthday parties


Hugh Paxton’s Blog received a post a couple of years ago – Charlie Clarke – and he urged parents not to have sex at the same time of the year because all the children will then have birthday parties in the same month. The June generation! I miss Charley. And I wish everybody would follow his advice. Three birthday parties next weekend. We just skipped two that collided, we had one. This scenario is becoming pandemic. Cluttered. Extremely inconvenient and quite frankly is destroying the novelty of a birthday party. It’s a city tour of those Mexican things you whack and when they break leak sweeties, cakes nobody eats, money floating with reckless abandon from parental pockets, Chinese rubbish that breaks, and hours and hours of children.

Here is my suggestion. Condoms!
