Happy Hump Day! Not going to lie, I spent about half the day thinking it was Thursday, but then around lunch time I realized the sad truth that it was only Wednesday. I really don’t like when that happens and I’d much rather have it the other way around. Like when you wake up in the morning on Thursday but quickly realize its Friday. Those days are awesome!
So this is like the Birthday edition of Remember that one time when even though my birthday was over a week ago now I didn’t get to write a post last week so I will just continue it to this week.
Remember that one time when…I had my very own surprise birthday party. My friends threw me a surprise birthday party for my 17th birthday out at the Farmer’s house. It basically just involved some grilling out, some game playing, and a bonfire. What they didn’t know is that I actually was behind most of the plans. That’s right, I planned my own surprise party.
You are probably wondering how in the heck one plans her own surprise party.
Well let me fill you in.
The scheming all started in Español class with my friend is cahoots Amanda. We were chatting in class one day during a break when I exclaimed that I wanted to have a surprise part for my birthday. Amanda agreed that it would be a lot of fun and we started working out the plan.
We just needed to convince the Farmer to have the party at his house and invite all our friends. And by we, I mean Amanda, had to do all this. Then the Farmer would simply invite me out to his houses to hang out and all our friends would be there for the party. So it was fairly simple and straightforward.
My other friends including the Farmer thought they were being very sneaky. I thought by the time I showed up at the Farmer’s house the night of the surprise party I would already be ousted. But they still had no idea! Amanda and I had achieved our goal of throwing an awesome surprise party!
I think about half way through the party another of my friends asked if I really had no idea about the party (because I had acted surprised when I walked in) and I laughed and said I didn’t have any idea. But my laughter must have gotten out of control because I eventually admitted that Amanda and I had planned it all.
And that’s how you plan your own surprise party!
