The selected buddies who were invited to my special birthday party were given instructions on how enter the house. At the front door I’d prepared an arrow to the side door saying “Other door”. Then, just above the back door bell, I’d sellotaped the message Sound bell & step boldly.
At least one group or partygoers obeyed the second set of instructions.
It should be obvious from these preparations that it wasn’t exactly a surprise birthday. I’d like to thank everyone for their presents and contributions towards the festivities that ensued. It was a super bash.
