I Love Surprises

I’m a giver.  I love giving or sharing something with someone and them get a kick out of it.  So of course, I love surprises.  The idea of shocking someone.  Blowing off their socks.  Or in this case, blowing out some candles.

You know when you want to surprise someone but are worried it won’t work out?  That was me – I am not a ninja.

I was constantly concerned about being caught red-handed or forgetting to leave a name off an e-mail.

Or that someone would accidently spill the beans.  Or I’d accidently spill the cake on the sidewalk.

But then it worked – the three of us pulled it off.  And that someone was surprised.

She didn’t think her friends were smart enough to leave her off an e-mail.  And are a little too talkative.  And clumsy.  But we are smart enough.  We are birthday surprise ninjas.  And even though we were about 10 days early, it’s never to early for celebrations.  And cake.

Hope you loved your birthday surprise as much as I did, Little Skipper.

    • Thank you. That’s glare from the candlelight. The room was pretty dark and lens picked up the glare. I’ve had it happen before in dark restaurants with twinkle lights.
