The big surprise

After my trip to Walmart (whooooooaaaaaa) and my adjustment to the new time change / getting off the adrenalin rush I finally made it to bed at 4 a.m.

So that morning I headed over to the annual open house Christmas party at my mom's friends place. I hid in the basement with a cell phone so that when she arrived I could call the house.

Our conversation went a little something like this:

Me - "hey mom (in a sad voice) I just called because I miss you.

Mom - "how did you get this phone number?"

Me - "I called home first and you weren't home so dad gave me the number to get ahold of you"

Mom - "oh yes I'm at a party......."

Me - "Why isn't dad there?"

Mom - "Dad didn't come because he's not feeling too well"

Me - "DAD DIDN'T COME.............BUT I CAME!!!!!!!

(then I ran up the stairs and gave mom a big hug while she dropped the phone)



Then because my dad (and brother) weren't there we got to plan another suprise for them while we were driving home. We thought it would be best if I stood at the end of the street and attempted to hitch a ride since my mom just had to swing by the house to pick up my dad. So that's what I did. I stood with my back to the road so they couldn't see who I was and then last minute I pretended to walk across the street as if I didn't see the car.

My dad's response - "What's that IDIOT doing?"

Then I ran up to the window to ask if I could borrow a cell phone

To which my dad replied - "Oh, hi Jen"

And even though I was late and my original plan fell through it was still an AWESOME SURPRISE and an AWESOME DAY!!!!!
