That's officially how old I am.
Yesterday was my birthday-
(Usually, Companion doesn't like me blogging about him, but too bad.)
Mari (my birthmom) was in town, and wanted to get together for my birthday-ironic? Hahaha...
Because of the weather, she cancelled and wanted to reschedule. I know what you're thinking, how can you reschedule my birthday? I mean, MY birthday?!? Whatever.
So dinner ended up being Companion, my sister, my cousin and his girlfriend. It was just dinner- nobody was hanging out or partying, everyone had other responsibilities to attend to. I should mention that I wasn't feeling the best- I was tired and my stomach was killing me.
As we pulled into the driveway, I noticed my sister turned in just before me.
What the heck was Sissy doing here? I thought she had to rush home?
And why is there a pick up truck in the driveway? Who's truck is that?
Yep. Companion threw me a surprise party- and boy, was I surprised!
I walked in to a fully decorated house, and a bunch of people in my living room.
Everybody that I am in contact with on a daily basis was in on it.
He had old friends, new friends, work friends, family friends, and friends I didn't even know.
A few friends got missed, but he did a really nice job. His biggest challenge was that I have a lot of friends (who'd of thought?), but none of them know each other. (Divide and conquer, people)
I even had a friend who took the bus from Downtown to my city, and walked a quarter mile in the snow to my house!
There was beer, food, beer, music, beer, no kids, beer, cake, and beer.
Really- what more could you ask for.
I should also mention that I've wanted a surprise party since I was 14, and never had one. There was nothing that I wanted more than that. Just a surprise party, dammit- is that too much to ask for?!? I mean, I stopped asking for a pony when I was like, eight!
So, yay! I got my party!
And despite my feeling icky, it was really awesome.
Way to go, Companion! You done good.
What? You didn't get invited???
I'm claiming innocence because obviously I didn't know-
Take it up with Companion.
So, it took twenty-sixteen years, but I had the best birthday ever!
