Happy Birthday!

Last night, I attended the 35th birthday of a friend. Roomie and I split a gift of two Growlers (1/2 gallon glass jug-like containers) of locally-brewed beer— a unique and fun gift for a guy who enjoys beer.

At some point in the evening, I realized he might not open his gift until the next day, and I wanted him to be sure to put the Growlers in the fridge that night, so I wandered over to him to cryptically relay this message:

Lola: Hey! I just wanted to tell you that you’re going to want to refrigerate your present tonight.

Birthday Boy (BB): Oh, um, okay (he’s looking concerned)

Lola: Oh! It’s nothing sinister or weird like a puppy. I just wanted you to know.

BB: Well… I wouldn’t put a puppy in the fridge…

Lola: No. No you would not. Fair enough.

  1. I totally thought it he was going to think it was a puppy too, halfway through that conversation. But, no, of course you wouldn’t refridgerate a puppy. Hmm.
