a bunch of big fat liars

15 Dec

that’s what you all are!  well, you know who you are anyway.  i suppose there are some innocent people out there.  anyway, here’s the deets on the surprise party.

scott comes home from work one day and lays down the first lie:  “i made plans for us for friday night”.  ok that should have been a big red flag.  the last time he made plans for us was in oh maybe 1979.  but it’s 3 weeks past my actual birthday so i wasn’t even looking for clues.  besides i just don’t do subtle. anyway, so lie #1….supper plans with mel and dirk.

first thing dirk does is give me a big squeeze and say happy birthday you old lady.  yeah, i should have caught on but figured since our birthdays are kinda close and his was coming up, that’s why he remembered.  then while he is talking to scott he says something like “yeah when you called today…..and then kinda fumbled around rewording it to when they ran into each other etc.”  ok, now i know you are thinking…geez woman, do you need to be hit in the head?…  well, here’s the dealo on that.  dirk has a heart condition and  seriously thought “oh gosh.  i think his heart just skipped a couple of beats”.  yeah that’s me.  being all concerned about some jack-wagon’s health while he is all in on the big surprise for me.

so we eat.  and all of a sudden dirk just gets up and says “time to go”.  o k ….. mel had asked us to stop by their house as she was going to be in the parade of home for christmas and wanted some advice on decorating so we head out to their home.  yeah lies lies lies.

and oh gosh, they have something that her sister sent over for decorating but it was in the gym so could i go out and see what i thought she could do with it?  gad.  i’m so easy.  they are so evil.

i will give credit that at least some of my warnings of dire consequences must have sunk in as it was not draped in black.  there was black (naturally) but combined with PINK.  there were tiaras for the girls and top hats for the boys.  there was pink beads and fabulous and 50 sashes.  there was pink and black zebra striped as well as polka dotted balloons.  there was a bright pink cake.  and snax and CHAMPAGNE.  and there was not 100 people there and i did not get a  crapzillion gag gifts.  just near and dear family. and a bag full of canned goods to send to the food pantry.

and it was.

      yes she does have her own gym and she doesn’t even use it for quilting or sewing or dyeing fabrics. silly girl, uses it for things like basketball and volleyball games. and the occasional party!

      ok jan, you may be innocent of being in on the party but i don’t think you can claim to be “innocent” in general!!! 🙂
