Do you have one of those friends that just totally ignore your suggestions and birthday rituals? I don't celebrate my birthday because they would count, but nooooo my girl friend Shelah just doesn't pick up those subtle hints. I thought we had agreed not to do anything, we were going today to get our nails done, go out for sushi and take a trip to the Fresh Market, you know a girls day out. Shelah picked me up at 1 pm for our day out, she had her son Austin with her and said that he was being rotten so we were going to drop him off at the Karate School where the rest of the family was helping Jesse out with the computer stuff. Which of course I didn't question at all. Austin was being a total brat when we pulled up and I was going to kick his ass myself, instead Shelah asked him to come over and she wanted a little talk, I went ahead and opened the back door to the school, with complete shock I found myself getting squirted down with silly string and all my friends and family standing there. I have been had! I can't believe this got pulled off without a hint from anyone. This was the biggest Surprise Party, who would have thought, its been a week since my birthday I was not expecting it at all. Does this mean I don't get my nails done?

We had cake and a obstacle course, don't all senior citizens get obstacle courses? Shelah told me I had to stop knocking down the course and I told her "It's My Party I can do what I want!" and she agreed. I didn't do so good on time, but I did have a lot of fun knocking people down while they were trying to run the course. I played like a little kid and so did my friends and family, I can't believe I am 29 again.

The gang was all in on this Surprise and I thought that I had dodged the birthday bullet again. My first instinct was to never speak to Shelah again, but I don't think I have ever had a friend that loved me enough to make a day just for me. I was so touched by the whole experience.

    You can't stop speaking to me. I would cry and pout and have a big ole hissy. Besides, who would gorge on sushi with you?

    I loved throwing that party for you. I swear, I told everyone that you were turning 29. I said it, so it is so and besides, you have the bouncing boobies to prove it. heh.

    the look of disgust instead of a surprise was the best, we all know how much you don't do parties, as always you manage to fill our memories with priceless events
