On the way to work, I got an iced grande, soy, blended chai tea latte and a breakfast sandwich from Starbucks. I LOVE Starbucks breakfast sandwiches and am SO SO glad that they finally have them at New England Starbucks now so I don't have to be a slave to evil empire that is Dunkin Donuts. That and I really dig blended chai
Then I came to work and I had a surprise on my desk from my friend who works upstairs. Gertrude is posing with my present above. Thanks, Sarah! As I was taking pictures of Gertrude and my birthday present, one of our editors came out of his office to sing happy birthday and dance around. That was also unbelievably funny. I'm quite sad Sassy wasn't here to see it.
So then I open my e-mail and saw the e-mail from Sarah....oh-my-goodness it SO funny. I'll share the funniness in a minute, but first the back story....
A group of friends of mine from college (of which Sarah is a part) near the end of our senior year took to referring to our group of friends as "the midgets." I'm not sure any of us really know how that happened as all of us are average-height people, though one of us is quite fond of little people...so I'm sure that had something to do with it. Anyway....at some point my fellow midgets and I started sharing random "midget facts" with each other. They usually go something like this, "Did you know midgets (are far superior to those of normal height....for this-and-this reason)?" I know, I know....it's kind of bizarre and silly but it's funny, okay?
So without further ado, this is my birthday midget fact of the day:
Did you know that on average, midgets enjoy their birthdays much more than average height people? This is because the cake to birthday person ratio is much higher, thus increasing the cake enjoyment factor. This ratio also applies to ice cream, wrapped gifts, and helium balloons.
...well I thought it was funny anyway.
