Yesterday Lloyd called to ask if I’d like to go to a spontaneous birthday party that one of his co-workers was having for herself. “Sounds fun!”Â I replied!Â So, we all met at Red Robin, and it turned out to be us and several of her friends from around Lincoln.Â It was very interesting, since all of them had jobs that WEREN’T teaching.Â I can’t remember the last time I’ve been with a group like that.Â One worked at a company that produced newsletters for other companies, one was a pastor, one was a nursing student, one worked at UNL (but not as a teacher!), one guy was in charge of all the computers for some call-processing place, and one was a grad student.Â I thoroughly enjoyed the evening…..until I realized I was the oldest one there.Â That’s going to start happening alot, now, huh?
“Happy Birthday, Customer,Â We hope you liked the food, We sing this made-up birthday song just so we don’t get sued.Â Stupid Michael Jackson, or was it Paul McCartney? He bought the rights to the real song and ruined all our parties.”
