Halfy birthday

Once you pass half life (35? 45? 60?) you want to slow things down, so...

Halfy birthday!

This is for when you reach the age where you don't want noisy parties with kids from the neighborhood that don't really want to play with you.

You get half a cake. With a recipe for half the calories. The music is at half volume. Only half of your "friends" show up, so you know who really cares. You only blow out half the number of candles. Then someone reads half a poem, leaving the remainder to your imagination. etc. etc.

Sorry this is only half of the idea.

I leave the rest to you.

       [+] I'll be halfy in September. A half year from my whole birthday in March.

       "That's not halfy for you!" (Mother, eyeing the halfday boy trying to lick the halfday cake icing)   

       My wife's is on March - she was born on Pieday.

       We had another kind of halfy birthday in my house recently, a date on which my younger daughter was exactly half the age (in days) as my older daughter. We took a picture with them holding signs: "I'm exaclty half her age" and "I'm exactly twice her age." I'm going to steal the name of this idea as the name of that photo. Thanks!   

       (BTW, does anyone else celebrate this once in a siblinghood event?)

       So, if I celebrate my "halfy" at age 65, I'll live to 130?

       Yes, I was four. I remember it, but it's a bit hazy.   

       Aww, I thought this was going to be a proposal to have an additional celebration at the mid-points between whole birthdays.
