Heads or Tails - Surprise


This week's Heads or Tails is coming to me from a brand new home on the web! Heads or Tails now has it's very own website! So check in each week for all the latest HoT news and information!

This week's topic is 'Surprise'. I'd like to say, first of all...I would like it to be know that luxury vacations make it to the top of the list of 'good' surprises! I would love to be surprised in this way any day of the week, seriously.

I have always wanted a surprise party. I've been saying it for years! I've helped plan many surprise baby showers, birthday parties and other types of surprises as well. I have rarely been on the receiving end of one though. I know how much work goes into putting on a surprise party. There's alot of love and sacrifice that's given in order to fully pull off a surprise and I guess I just haven't been the deserving type that people would go to that much trouble for me. I am remembered in smaller surprises, but not a full on surprise party.

The last great surprise I remember was a double or really, triple surprise. I helped plan a surprise birthday party for my cousin's husband....who came to the 'fake' surprise party for his friend, Brian-whom he ushered in blindfolded. The two of them came in, Brian took off his blindfold and we all shouted "Surprise Larry!" and went right into singing the happy birthday song. He was so utterly confused and surprised, it took him half the song to finally get that we were all there for him! He started crying and said, "For me?!" Bless his heart, he had even started singing Happy Birthday with us even though he thought he was there for a graduation party! LOL The creme de la creme of the surprises came a little later in that same party when my cousin surprised all of us by giving Larry a birthday card that read, "Happy birthday, daddy!" and inside was a positive pregnancy test!!!!!!!! Yes, surprises can be very good indeed, I'm happy to watch other people get surprised, it puts a smile on my face, too!

Nobody ever gave me a surprise party either. LOL! The year I was going to turn 50, I even told all my kids ALL I wanted was for us all to be together that day. Did it happen? Nope. It could have been cuz I'd gotten married and moved three hours away. :)

When I was growing up, I always wanted a surprise party. My sister got one for her 13th bday, and I never did. No surprise there. By the time I turned 13, everyone was too tired!
