Last week was my birthday.
My wife didn’t wish me a happy birthday and my children did not acknowledge my special day.
I went to work and none of my co-workers wished me a happy birthday.
I felt sad.
But when I entered my office, my personal assistant called out, “Happy birthday, boss!”
That was lovely.
My assistant then asked me to go to lunch with her.
We stayed at the bar after lunch and then we went to her apartment.
While at her apartment, she said, “Do you mind if I go change into something more comfortable?
“Sure,” I replied.
My birthday had gone from a sad morning to a hope-filled evening
After a minute or two, she came out of her bedroom.
She held a birthday cake, and she was accompanied by my wife, my children, my friends, and my co-workers, all screaming, “Surprise!”
I certainly was surprised.
I was sitting on the couch - naked.
