6 missed calls. I answered the 7th…”Come out of your house!”, she said
BOOYAH! SURPRISE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
What a great surprise, indeed! I didn’t expect it! I was shocked at first! I was like “How did you know my address?” thinking only my high school friends knew my house! Well, they have ways… In the middle of the oh so silent night, where everyone is asleep, including my cousins, my parents, our neighbors, I have to open our locked gate to welcome them in in our messy house hehe. Because of the new faces, our dog barked unnecessarily which might have awoken the whole village.
They were 4. 2 college classmates and 2 other friends I’ve come to know during our practicum or summer on-the-job training. They were holding balloons and 2 boxes filled with red velvet cupcakes. I was touched. Never in my life has anyone greeted me at the tick of midnight (except for my family of course) right at our doorsteps. They also called up more friends to greet me. That was just the sweetest! Another thing! They even made a video for me with messages from friends and classmates. That’s what you call effort!
To my friends, thank you so much! Never will I forget my 21st birthday!
