Happy Birthday

How many birthdays can you remember? By which I mean you have a specific, concrete memory connected to your own birthday.

I remember my sixteenth (my whole family forgot it) and my nineteenth (guy I was dating broke up with me). I remember a brief little moment from my fifth (my father once again publicly shaming me for being myself). And another one where weather was unseasonably cold, but I don't know what year that was.
