I Bet You Didn't Know

I had a birthday last week. They seem to come quicker and quicker. (Sigh)

I make it a point not to tell people at work that it is my birthday or if it was coming up. I get plenty of attention at home and I don’t want people who work for me to feel any kind of obligation to recognize the day.

This year the cat was out of the bag. The crew put together a really nice party for me. They arranged for an extra long lunch break with the new superintendent so that they could serve lunch, cake, and give me gifts. The new boss was really impressed that I had a crew that cared so much. I was really touched.

Below is a picture of my lunch and gift. Not shown is the bottle of Cazadores that they also gave me. The gift box of tequila came with two shot glasses. I guess the glass with my named engraved on it is supposed to be used for the Crown Royal. The glass reminds me of the one Elwood used in the fancy restaurant when he has the waiter fill his wine glass to the very top. I guess instead of filling that big glass with wine I’m supposed to fill it to the top with Canadian Whiskey. :)

Just as long as you don't as the people at the next table "How much for your women?"

That is required at all restaurant outings.

Happy Birthday! I know what you mean though about not wanting too many people to know about it. I told some of the people I work with about it when my birthday was last month, but even then, I didn't really feel like it.

Crowh Royal is a favorite beverage in our house. Leucantha beat me to my favorite line in the movie. Ever notice what the name of the salon is that Jake's ex-girlfriend works at? After watching it like a million times I saw it when she was in the sewer with Jake. It says "Curl up and Dye."

Happy Birthday indeed! Is there any of that Crown Royal left? ;)

I wish I would have received some Royal Crown (or anything alcoholic.) Instead, I received a big 'ol jug of real maple syrup. I'm not kidding. S got it at Costco. I would always look at it lovingly but never allowed myself to buy a huge, $28 dollar jug o' maple syrup so, she got it for me for my birthday.

Waffles are a good way to celebrate but I'd rather have a hangover.

Gettin' old sucks, eh?

:)
Happy B-day!
