Un-surprise party

“We know you don’t want a surprise, so I’m letting you know some of your friends are planning something for your birthday. Don’t look daggy,” MJ prepared me two weeks ago.

“Just something casual in a park,” Tracey added a few days later. “It will be fun. Jeremy says he’ll drag you there kicking and screaming if he has to.”

(Not to worry, MJ had already sat me down in front of this episode of Absolutely Fabulous, so I will be well-behaved.)

“Yes, it is on your actual birthday,” Tod admitted a couple days on. “I think you should wear a hat and a sundress.”

“No, jeans and a turtleneck won’t work. Wear a floaty dress,” Tracey told me last night. “Think ‘high tea.’ Do you have any lawn games, like boules or croquet?”

I am getting a picture of what my 40th birthday party will be like. Elegant. Casual. Outdoors. Sounds like something I’d plan for myself, actually. Yay, friends!

Saturday’s weather is forecast to be partly sunny and warmer than it’s been the last couple of days, but still too cool for any of my floaty dresses. I want something with sleeves! Guess I’ll be doing a bit of pre-birthday sewing or shopping. At least I won’t be embarrassingly daggy.

Happy Birthday!

As someone whose 40th was five days… and seven years ago, I can say it’s not that bad. The party sounds like fun! Roujin or not.

Very bummed, but I am way behind on work, and won’t be able to make it. Have a very happy birthday!
