It was my birthday on Friday. I'm 29 now, for the first time too. I went into the weekend thinking it would be just another ho-hum birthday in the world of being an adult, but it quickly turned into one of the best birthdays ever. (2nd place to my 5th birthday when my parents let me have it at Hardee's and we got to play the game where you see who can build the biggest tower out of styrofoam fish sandwich containers. Ahhh memories!)
I was at my local watering hole with Kevin and my neighbors on Friday night enjoying birthday beer #3 or #4 when all of a sudden a pair of hands covered my eyes. I immediately got excited and thought it was Kim, but I didn't want to offend whoever it really was by guessing it was her and then trying to hide my disappointment, so I just mumbled for a bit until the hands were removed. It WAS Kim and our other friend Mattie, who came from out of town at the last minute to surprise me. Honestly, how lucky am I to have friends like that? I'm not even that cool!
So we all had a great time taking birthday shots (Kim's birthday is the day after mine) and playing board games until the wee hours of the morning.
