Last weekend I drove up to Havelock, NC for a surprise birthday party. My mom turns 60 today, and this is where things get confusing. My Godmother’s birthday was on Sunday, but my mom was under the impression we were there to throw a party for her upcoming trip to Russia – completely unrelated to either of their births.
So we walked in the door to the party and everyone yelled “SURPRISE!” My mom stepped aside thinking they were actually throwing a birthday party for my Godmother instead of just a going away party, when in fact the birthday party was for her. Confusing, right? But it was very well planned and turned out to be a lot of fun.
I lived in Havelock for a couple of years during elementary and middle school and my Godmother still lives there along with a few of my mom’s friends, so everyone had a good time catching up. Plus when you get my mom and Godmother together, it’s like watching an improvised Saturday Night Live skit.
