I don't like celebrating mine because it's a disaster every year. My friends thought it would be cute to throw a surprise party once. As soon as I figured it out I decided to get lost...so much I didn't know where I was
Although I've had several that were memorable in good or bad ways, my 5th birthday comes to mind. We had recently returned to the states after living in Germany, and my parents kindly stopped to buy me a cake on the way to our temporary quarters on the base. Before they went in to check things out, they told my brother and I to stay away from that cake.
The minute they were out of sight, my big brother started acting like a bull and lunging at me. I jumped over the front seat, slipped and kind of smushed the cake. Then my brother came up to look..and ended up smushing it some more. We both got spanked and ordered to bed. I remember like it was yesterday, lying there looking at my smushed cake...thinking how unfair life is.
Nuts! Sometimes you just can't win!
Sometimes you can't, for sure. That night over half a century ago, I definitely did feel that way. :)
Thank ya for sharing. That sounds like something I would do
I long time ago my wife threw a surprise 50th birthday for me about a month before the actual date. It pretty much floored me, but was very memorable.
Aww that sounds like it was a sweet surprise
Well glad ya had a nice visit
My sixteenth and 21st were the most fun .... my 70th was the biggest shock. Now that I'm past it, I'm trying to just appreciate my days.
I made my daughter's 20th birthday a blast and I hope I can go above and beyond for her 21st.
What a great mom!
I try my best
A crumbled birthday cake on the floor, a broken bottle for a weapon.
Standing back to back with Billy, he had the cake knife.
Pretty sure that's how it went, I just turned 7.
Hopefully they didn't untie your horse and run off with it
I thought they did but then I remembered, I didn't have a horse.
My 21st. A surprise birthday party where I was working.
Oh I bet that was a blast. My 21st I was sick and had pneumonia but I enjoy hearing stories of others experiences.
It was a lot of fun. And quite the surprise. lol
Sorry you were sick on your 21st, bummer.
I love to plan parties just not have one for myself lol
