It is lovely Karen’s birthday today.
She is one of my closest friends and I just love her.
We had a fun-filled evening of festivities in her honor. One of the highlights was at dinner. NOTE: I have informed my friends several times over the years that if they have ever just had it with me and my crap and would like to have ME dump THEM, take me to a restaurant on my birthday, have the waiters sing and clap, and stick a stupid ass sombrero on my head.
There was another huge highlight (I love doing stuff like this along with my sneaky partner in crime, Michelle *She is the one NOT wearing the sombrero in the photo*)
ME: Karen, if you had a million dollars, what would you do with it first?
KAREN: I would have an assortment of awesome and eclectic beverages in my fridge at all times.
That is a freaking fabulous and rare answer, my friends. It is also a comment that has been much discussed and related over the years. She even made a “DREAM BEVERAGE” list and blogged about it (READ HERE).
A few months ago, Chelle and I cooked up a little plan. We would make that list a reality!!!
SHE HAD NO IDEA.
We even ordered one of her favorite sodas that is made and distributed in North Carolina (CHEERWINE) and had it shipped to me last week.
The best part is that she had no idea what was up. We even got other Birthday gifts for her so she wouldn’t be suspicious. I bought half of her ticket to Erasure and Chelle took a present to her today at work.
THEN we went to her apartment, found the key and stocked her fridge FULL.
We waited to see if she would open it after work (Before we went to dinner).
Finally, we told her there was something hidden in her apartment and she would have to find it after dinner. She went to put her leftovers in the fridge before she started “Looking” and FOUND THIS!!!!
- Orange Nestle Pure Life Splash
- Apple Flav H2O
- Grape Fruit2O
- Ruby Red Grapefruit and Tangerine Juice
- Vanilla Milk *Made by Gossners in Logan. This is the same milk used in the infamous “Do you drink 1% because you think you’re fat” line in Napoleon Dynamite*
- Lemon Dasani
- Coke Classic
- Dr. Pepper
- Welch’s Grape Juice
- Schwepp’s Ginger Ale
- Cherry 7up
- IBC Rootbeer
- Country Time Lemonade
It was so damn cool.
When are we not?
Happy Birthday, my friend. You make June 26th tolerable.
