January Kids

In my humble opinion, January is not the time to give birth to kids. Afterall, the holiday has just ended and it may or may not be a good idea to take a one month leave.

Then you have the kids' birthdays dropping on inconvenient dates. The kid arrives to school, with nobody knowing that it is his/her birthday. Then there's the Christmas shopping, which certainly drained the parents of all money. What with the upcoming Chinese New Year and loads of red packets to give out, I doubt the parents would want to spend much on the birthdays.

What's more, a January-born kid is usualy regarded just as old as a December-born kid in the same year. The 11-months' expenses go to waste.

It's a good thing most parents do not think this way.

Unfortunately, I happen to know two of such friends. Dwayne, my course's representative, has his birthday on the 6th of January, while um, what's his name? We just call him 1-Gig, well, his birthday's today. Both of them are 20 now.
