On the way to a craft fair my friend announced how she went to a birthday party the previous night, that it was her party. I didn't quite compute the last part, that it was a party for her. Here we were in October, while her birthday was middle of August. For some reason the Girls she'd worked with for over twenty years had decided it was her birthday, so they threw her a party, a surprise fiftieth party. SHE IS NOT FIFTY!!! Now that's organized! A surprise fiftieth, only ten months too soon! Unfazed my friend chuckled in amusement, suggesting that forty nine must be the new fifty!!!"
