When someone says “surprise party” what’s the first thing that comes to mind? I’ll bet it’s a bunch of people hiding in a dark room waiting for the celebrant to come home, right? That’s the Hollywood standard, after all.
Well, that’s a lot of work. You have to get the birthday-boy (in this case) out of the house with a plausible reason and then have the guests all sneak back in behind him. My friends decided to make it a whole lot easier – although just as effective – by staging a sneak frontal attack.
I was expecting guests for our semi-regular Thursday evening viewing of So You Think You Can Dance Australia – but since my birthday was earlier in the week, I certainly wasn’t expecting cake and the accompanying fireball of candles that came crashing through the front door with my nutty but lovable friends! Seriously, I thought the house was burning down.
Junkii was in on the surprise too, and was prepared with his camera to snap a few photos. And after poses and hugs – and a few minutes scraping up splatters of melted wax off the hardwood – we sat down to discover a fabulous new flavor combination: DQ ice cream cake and leftover Cinnabons!
It was a very good night.
