Ordinary Day

Today, I worked an ordinary day at the supermarket. I checked out ordinary people with ordinary groceries on my ordinary cash register (which made a very ordinary “beep” every time I scanned an item). But, today was not ordinary–today it was my birthday.

When I got home, the house was dark. Very dark. I walked into the living room and there was just this candle burning there. Dark Room

Then, the lights went on and, “SURPRISE!”

My neighbors, Pat and Cindy, had a surprise party ready for me. Complete with a cake, a banner, two presents, and lots of orange pop. I don’t like orange pop much, but Pat likes it and drinks it by the liter.

Birthday Party

The banner read “Happy Happy Birthday!”

Cindy said the second “Happy” meant that not only was I happy it was my birthday, they were happy too. Cindy says stuff like that sometimes. I’m glad she was happy.

After I cut the cake we played Scrabble. Didn’t win–I’m not good at spelling. Pat won, he is always good at games.

My presents were: a coffee table book from National Geographic, and three fish in a fishbowl. I’ll have to remember to feed the fish tomorrow morning or they’ll . . . you know.

I wonder how Pat and Cindy got into my house before the party? I remember locking it up. . .
