    Well,the first rule of the Surprise Party is secrecy and the second one is The less anyone talks, the less chance of the wrong people finding out. As the WWII saying goes: Loose lips sink ships hahaha  jk .Anyway,Yes,My 31st birthday party,a friend of mine called me to come to his house.He said he needed me for something urgent.So I went but he shocked the hell out of me as I stepped in. It made me feel very special:)He was very nice:)

    Hello Lady_E , yes it is possible for me to make a brief statement. I enjoy brief statements. It is unfortunate so many people can not. I must  share this with you I recently purchased a book printed in 1887 concerning the history  of England, it was not treated well but the reading is spectacular. smile

      Well, the fact that you could get hold of a book printed in 1887 is enough reason to have a party.... I know you're pulling my legs...

      No, Lady_E I really do have this book. I make it a promise to myself to never lie it at all possible.

    I just experienced this for the first time a couple of weeks ago. My wife led me to believe we were going to a restaurant to celebrate one of her friend's husband's birthday. Since it was the week before my birthday I didn't suspect a thing. We even stopped by Walgreens on the way to the restaurant to pick up a card for the guy. (nice touch). At any rate when we walked into the reserved room everyone said "Surprise!" It took a second or two for it to register that the party was for (me). I found myself smiling and laughing primarily because I couldn't believe I got fooled! All in all we had a great time.

    My girlfriend had setup a surprise birthday party a couple years back.  It was done so well and I felt very much appreciated.  Even my cousin from out of state had shown up.
