    Default Please check my grammar!

    I don't like to celebrate birthdays but to be honest it gives me great pleasure when I am being wished by someone. It indicates how much selfish I am. Isn't it?

    Maybe something like:

    I don't like to celebrate my birthday, but -- to be honest -- it pleases me when

    someone remembers it. That makes me egotistical, doesn't it?

    (Answer: No, it doesn't. Everyone is touched when other people remember his/her

    birthday. It's only human.)

    I agree w/Parser's response. It's human nature.
