You've Got a Friend in Me!

Over the weekend I went to a surprise birthday party.

The party was for one of my guy friends. His girlfriend had emailed a whole bunch of people a few days earlier to invite us all.

She instructed us to show up at this restaurant downtown around 6:45 p.m., and she would bring him there at 7 p.m. and we'd all yell "Surprise!" when they came in.

Great. So I took the subway down to the restaurant, and was the first to arrive at 6:45. Since nobody else was there, I sat at the bar and had a drink while I waited.

30 minutes later, I was still the only person there. Um.

At 7:30, my friend and his girlfriend walked in. They were half an hour late, but still earlier than all of their other friends.

"SURPRISE!!" I yelled, as loudly as I could.

I jumped around and tried to give the illusion of lots of people there, but it was an uphill battle.
