Birthday Celebrations





"Did you hear me, Joe?" Patty inquired.

"Yes! I got it. I have to be home on time." Said Joe irritably as he walked out the door.

"I bet he'll be late, and there goes all my preparation for his birthday party," Patty whispered to herself as she pulled out the many bowls she had hidden in the oven, away from Joe's sight. 

 "Oh! I know, how about I move the party to his workplace. That way, I won't have to fret over him coming on time." she said with a wide grin and was quick to text all.

I hope he appreciates the effort! Surprise parties can be tough for all involved.

Good solution! I was thinking how hard it would be to plan a surprise party for my wife. I never know where she is going to be at any given time...totally unpredictable, she is!
