So today is my friend’s, Mike’s, birthday! Last night, on Facebook, he changed his status to “Michael turns 17 at 3 am tomorrow… Hope everyone knows.” Well. I’m a big one for birthdays. So I told him, “I’m going to tell you happy birthday at three tomorrow! I will. I”ll set my alarm!”
Now, I am aware that telling him this turns that into a big commitment – no going back on my word. But. of course I didn’t wake up when that alarm went off this morning! Oh, Crap.
So. I had to do something about it. And when said “thing” was done, I told all and explained everything in a wall post to him today. It says it all:
Okay, so here’s the deal: My plan was to set an alarm to wake up at three and tell you happy birthday. However, I did not wake up when said alarm sounded, and therefore, I missed this opportunity.
I felt SO awful about it that I bought a plane ticket flew all the way over here to Dhaka, Bangladesh, where it IS currently 3 am, so “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”
I think that pretty much makes up for it.
