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. :)
