Chuck E. Cheese's!
Who wouldn't like that? I may be older, but I still love my birthday. I don't take the day off from work, I haven't had a party since I turned 21, and I never have plans with my friends. It's always low-key, but secretly, it's still a special day for me!
Let me tell you about how I ruined my birthday gift from Mr. TBS... twice.
A few weeks ago, I brought the mail in after work. In my usual fashion, I started emptying my lunch bag and putting things away. I opened the mail, which included a package, to sort through it (and recycle almost all of it). Without looking at who the box was from, I opened one end of the box and slid the contents onto the table. I didn't even touch anything. I saw the cookbook that changed our lives, so I was happy about that! I left it there, knowing that Mr. TBS said he would order it from Amazon.
Five minutes later, Mr. TBS held up Bridesmaids on Blu-Ray, and said, "So you saw your birthday present!" I was surprised! I didn't see it, because it was under the cookbook. Oops!
A few days later, we got home from work and started settling in. He was changing his clothes to work out, so I unpacked his lunch bag for him. And then I found the cutest cupcake card -- my birthday card! I didn't have the heart to say anything, so I left it on the table next to his wallet as my silent way of letting him know, giggling the whole time.
Five minutes later, he saw the card on the table. We were both laughing, because I ruined my birthday gift again! Double oops!
Moral of the Story:
I'm an excellent surprise ruiner.
1.) We died of laughter watching the Bridesmaids special features.
2.) He doesn't have to write a card!
Have you ever ruined a surprise party or a gift for yourself?
