It is not easy to throw a birthday party for an introvert. They spend a fair bit of time beforehand rather dreading all the socializing, and then you feel bad for torturing them on their birthday, and like what you really should have done is left them alone for a week.

That said, lots of Kevin's old friends came into town this weekend, and we went to Daniel and Anne's to grill food and play poker and socialize. And Kev looked like he was having fun. After several hours, I took the sleepy / sleeping children home, and left him to continue playing poker and drinking beer. That's a good, manly birthday, right? Even for an introvert?

Next year, though, maybe I'll take the children and go away for a week. I bet he'd like that.
