On the second night, we all got there before my sister and there was a short debate about what to yell. “Surprise!” and “Happy Birthday!” were two pretty sound options. It got me thinking though …

  1. I actually thought I heard someone yell, “suprise you’re pregnant!!” and almost threw up. It’s a possibility for the good AND the bad list, depending on the situation.
