I'm having a milestone birthday this week and it's not a good one. I'm not looking forward to the requisite conversations of 'You're how old? No way! Well, you sure look good for your age!' happening at work on that day. My friend at work said I should just take a vacation day cause that's what she would do just to make it less depressing, but I think that if I were to take that day off people would assume I was too chicken to face the music.

What are your feelings on milestone birthdays in the workplace and the path of least resistance through them?
