It’s a family tradition to have a candle in every meal of the day on your birthday.
In the Carvel on the night of his party:
At breakfast in his Cheerios on his actual birthday:Picked him up for lunch for a date and he had Subway. With a candle.And his dinner request was sushi. The waitresses were pretty confused when I asked for a lighter for the candle for the dinner. They thought it should go in dessert. Wrong. Nothing says happy 7th birthday like a yellowtail roll with a candle in it.
