They got me

I fell for it. Hook, line, and sinker.

I had no idea they were planning a party for me. Even when I walked in the front door and they all yelled, “Surprise”, I still thought it had been a mistake. I was thinking, “Oops, did they mistake me for Max?”

Then I saw Tano and Dave and Serge…and knew. I’d been had. I walked back out the door.

On my second arrival, I saw my parents. I pointed and said, “What? You…ooooh. Argh!”

Then I walked out the door again. After my third arrival, I was content to accept my fate. The funeral theme was hilarious: ‘In Loving Memory…’ cards, death certificate, individually wrapped handkerchiefs, a band playing dirges. The wheelchair was a nice touch as well.


  1. Hahaha. Very nice.

  2. Yes, we left here with a couple of bags of stuff for the party and told Phil we were off to another friend’s place. It was great!

  3. Mom sent me a copy of death announcement things, that was a stroke of genius on someone’s part. Turned out to be very funny. 🙂
