Even I Was Surprised!

Dear Journal,

The co-worker that I sit with is going on vacation for 2 weeks, his birthday is during the time he’s gone. So I was thinking maybe we could celebrate it before he leaves, plus he’s been a pretty cool guy to know.

I IM’ed another co-worker the other day to ask for help. So we schemed and planned without him knowing it.

I bought one of those huge birthday cards and emailed everyone asking if they could sign it and the other co-worker bought the cake and choose the restaurant.

We went to this Asian restaurant / bar, he thought it was just dinner. Oh no .. he assumed wrong, ha!

The beer we had wasn’t strong enough because I didn’t feel a buzz at all, ha! Even though I probably had 7 -8 glasses (they were small though).

We ordered so much food, thank goodness it was family style and all of us shared it.

As we were eating dinner they dimmed the lights and all of us thought nothing of it. We continued drinking when the waitresses came out singing, “Happy Birthday!!”.

It was funny to see my co-workers face because it was of pure shock. In his mind he was probably thinking, “What the hell is this!?”, haha.

We gave him the card afterward and he was saying how he didn’t see it being passed around. I think he was genuinely surprised about all of it though.

I absolutely love surprises because it’s funny to see the persons reaction.

So for the next two weeks I will have the cube all to myself.

Will it be quiet and lonely for me? Yeah it will because I won’t have someone to turn around and start talking about random stories that have happened or things I read in the news.

It was a fun night, just hanging out and joking around with them. Hopefully he enjoyed himself .. I couldn’t have done it without this other co-worker.

Kind of feel like my old self again, which is great. Not there quite yet .. but slowly and surely I’m getting there.

Just need to shed off the old clinging stuff first *smiles*

    I don’t drink often, but I hate it when I drink & don’t get a bit of a buzz. LOL!

    That’s cool that he was surprised! That’s hard to do in an office setting.

    Yeah he was pretty surprised … I think we told everyone at the office it was a surprise party and thankfully everyone didn’t say anything.

    It was fun though and his thank you email was really thoughtful .. who knew? Lol
