Over a month ago on February 17, 2007, Chris turned 30. We surprised him with a boatload of friends coming over to wish him well. Everyone was told to bring 30 of something (not expensive, that wasn’t the point) that he would find funny or cool or just whatever! It was fun! He got 30 quarters, 30 tic tacs, 30 fun sized candy bars, 30 jolly ranchers, 30 lures/artificial bait/fishing goodies, 30 maraschino cherries, a lint roller that had 30 sheets on it (Dacia can be so weird sometimes! I love you, friend!), and some random other things. He got a giant pez dispenser from Maya (he asked for it so I tried to make it 30 of something and all I could think of was cavities, pretty bad, huh?). From Brin he received 30 nights of restful sleep (6 pairs of ear plugs that were good for 5 nights each–therefore 30 nights). From me, he was given a party with 30 friends invited. Only 25 could make it, but 30 WERE invited! Our house was packed!
The best gift he received, however, was a 30 pack of mountain dew! Our friends, who gave that to him, know what he likes! It was fun had by all and I think most importantly, Chris enjoyed himself!
