Surprise

Friday at work we decided to order in from a new restaurant.  Someone collected the order and I got busy with a project.  I soon hear the food had arrived so I made my way to the break room only to discover it had been decorated with birthday banners and a beautiful cake.  I turned and asked whose birthday it was and feeling very guilty that I hadn't known and at least gotten a card.  Then I realized they were singing happy birthday to me.  Except the surprise was on them since my birthday isn't for several months.

Turns out a co-worker in another area thought she saw that my birthday was Sunday on Facebook.  She called someone on my team late Thursday night to make sure they knew so they could do something.  The team did some mad scrambling Thursday night/Friday morning to pull a celebration together.  I feel very honored and very much enjoyed my non-birthday celebration.  The entire team had such a good time laughing about it that we've decided to keep on celebrating non-birthdays.  After all, any excuse for cake.

Love it! I especially appreciate that your team could have a good laugh over it :) Happy Un-birthday! That is a really cute cake...is that the one they got for you? Is it as tasty as it looks?
