How to Surprise a Tamalamadingdong

Have a friend invite the Birthday girl to celebrate the day with something fun- "just between the two of them."

Have everyone sneak to your house while she's gone.

Have the friend bring her back to the house to "pick something up".
(or was it to pick someone up? as in me?)

Yell "Surprise!" upon entry!

That's what happened 10 + years ago, and I have some not so good and yet very good pictures to prove it.

(coolest group of friends I've ever had!)

Here is the part where my memory gets fuzzy.

We did something to her belly.... I remember a piece of bread was involved... a match or a candle... a cup... and in the end she had a perfect circular belly bruise.

I don't remember how she was suckered into it or why it was so hilarious. But she was and it was.

Sometimes we call her Tam or Tamara because Tamalamadingdong is such a mouth full.

Happy Birthday Tamara!!!

My sister, 17 months my junior, we've shared bedrooms and clothes and makeup and friends and boyfriends (yuck!) and laughter and tears. You aren't only my sister but also my friend.

Hope it's a good day!

P.S. Hey Tam, Do you even read my blog?

P.S.S. Didn't that party rock?

P.S.S.S. Don't I rock for throwing you one?

P.S.S.S.S. How are you going to answer these questions if you never read my blog?

P.S.S.S.S.S. If you read my blog, will you please comment so's I knows it?

P.S.S.S.S.S.S. How exactly did they put a bruise on your belly? Do you remember? I remember bread and a cup and was it a candle??

P.S.S.S.S.S.S.S. Don't you comment on wittle baby sister Anitra's blog?

P.S.S.S.S.S.S.S.S. What's up with that?!

No way, I said the coolest GROUP of friends, I don't have a current group.

I refuse to get over it, I will keep mentioning it and hoping they'll stop out of guilt, if nothing else.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! And I agree - how rude that your ode to your sister has apparently gone unnoticed by the object of your attention!
