So really, when your baby sister turns 40, just what are you supposed to do???
Why, throw her a surprise party, of course!
And yeah, I'd say she was pretty much surprised .... for the most part .... except I really should remember that it's always evident someone is lying (that someone would be ME, trying to pull off the surprise) when they give too much detail ... but all told, I think my brother in law and I pulled the wool *almost* all the way over her eyes.
And sure, there were tons of people there, and lots of laughing and goofing off and general merriment, but I still think *MY* 40th birthday party was better.
had a silly hat.
*I* had tons of alcohol.
had bowling ... and laughing .... and a trivia-hunt-road-rally ....
*I* had karoke.
had lots of friends for pizza and cake and ice cream ....
*I* had skinny-dipping with my girlfriends.
On second thought, I'm getting too old for that shit, and maybe her party was better after all. At the very least, there was no hang-over the next morning.
And darn it all, she'll ALWAYS be younger than me!!!
