Singing “Happy Birthday” to a Stranger

I was at a restaurant last night enjoying a nice meal with some good friends when we were interrupted by one of the servers with an important announcement. Apparently it was Pablo’s thirty-first birthday and he chose to celebrate in that particular establishment and the server wanted everybody to wish him a happy birthday. The server counted to three and the entire restaurant started singing “Happy Birthday” to a stranger. We were all united for ninety seconds while we sang loudly and off-key. Then we went right back to enjoying our food and ignoring Pablo. Such is the way of the world: we will acknowledge a birthday briefly but nobody really cares.
