Surprise, Surprise

Who knew I'd be duped like that, by someone I thought was way too honest

Who knew I'd be 31 and still feel like a fool

Who knew that I wouldn't be able to eat any of the two dozen chocolate cupcakes sitting before me, all for me (due to nervous excitement)

Who knew I'd be given a heaping pile of firewood, bottles of red wine, a gallon of kombucha and so much laughter, for being here so little time on this planet (much less in these beautiful people's lives)

Who knew I'd have these friends, creating this life for myself after 2 1/2 years here

Who knew the surprise was on me.  I thought I was such a smarty pants.  Humph.  

Birthday parties, you never get too old for them.
