Yesterday was my 39th birthday (it's after midnight). I had such a fabulous surprise waiting for me when I showed up to work. The first thing I encountered was this at the top of the back stairwell:
(here's a closer look)
I nearly fell to the ground in laughter! It was so uh, appropriate??
I went straight to Summer, my Medical Assistant, and thanked her for the laugh. I knew whe was behind it. She looked at me and grinned and said, "OK, but so, you haven't yet been to your office, I see..."
Oh no, I thought. And look what I found there!
And that's just the door! There were streamers and balloons inside and outside my office and along the border of my desk. And there was a cake with little running shoes on it with desert plants and bones.
But the BEST thing was the picture. Remember my "Bells & floods" post? Well, Summer made about 25 copies of that picture of all different sizes, and it was up on the wall EVERYWHERE...with bubble sayings that people in the office wrote. And it was just friggin' hilarious! There were even pictures on the back of the bathroom door! Boy, did that one catch me off guard!
Here's one of my favorites:
Are these guys not the BEST!?
And there's more, but I can't brag so much about my colleagues here. I'll just give you the link to some more pictures for fun (or for birthday ideas for the loved one).
It's been a great day as far as Birthdays go. I don't mind being 29 at all. :)
