My Super Secret Surpise Party
That I threw myself.
Yesterday I turned 36. Wait, I mean 29.
And you'd think that with a birthday of 7/7/71 I'd be a whole lot luckier. I am fairly lucky but not as lucky as all those sevens suggest.
So I had a pool party.
And, of course, it rained.
Never mind that we have been in a drought all summer. But I knew it would rain. Happens every single time I plan a party for outside. And just so you know I am having a pool party for Beau on July 28th--so if you've got important outside plans that day you might want to change them or get a tent because it is going to rain. Sorry.
My plan was simple enough: pool, beer, hot dogs, cake and champagne.
All that happened despite the lack of sunshine but as it turned out quite a few people ended up not being able to make it or couldn't stay long so I have a lot of hot dogs. But smart me bought hot dogs that have good til date of October 07. So we will be having these hot dogs, instead of pizza, at Beau's birthday in 2 weeks. And then I will not be eating another hot dog until I am 40 as my consumption this summer alone has surpassed that of all my other 36 years on this planet.
Later, we went back to our house and had a fireworks show in the driveway. Good times. Happy Birthday to me.
Thanks to all who came and celebrated with me-- you helped make it a good one. Smooches to each and every one of you.
