Okay, so I have a bunch of cool co-workers. I honestly didn't expect any kind of b'day celebration when I went to work this morning, but surprise! There was cake, food, gifts, cards, etc. I even got serenaded at one point. Afterward, there was a small tailgate in the parking lot. The beer was of the root variety! I don't need any trouble from HR.
As for the bowl on my head, I didn't have a birthday hat... so I improvised. You have to wear a hat when someone is singing Happy Birthday to you (it's customary). I love this card Leslie drew me, just whipped it up on the spot. I'm a bit envious because I stink at drawing.
