I guess there’s a first time for everything.

Today, for the first time, I got a surprise birthday party. Somehow in the past 25 years, when someone tried to arrange that I ended up being in the wrong place in the wrong time, and caught them. This time, though, it was they who caught me. The funny part is, I did get them when my girlfriend called Daniel – but she was clever and gave me a false clue, getting me totally off-guard today (my b-day is tomorrow, which is when I expected something was going to happen).

I am very glad this has happened. I think everyone should get a surprise party sometime. It feels really good – and I’m glad it happened to me.

Thanks everyone – I loved it.
