Today at our usual Wednesday morning staff meeting, my coworkers surprised me by giving me a card and singing “Happy Birthday” to me.
Which I loved!
Oh, how I love my birthday.
At any rate, I opened the card and read all the nice messages from them. “Happy birthday!” “You’re the greatest!” “May all your dreams come true!”
And then I saw one from one of my male coworkers:
“Happy Birthday, Jillian! I want to marry someone like you. [Smiley face], Blank.”
For the last hour, I have successfully been avoiding eye contact.
Three cheers for honesty!
