A Very Covid Birthday

In a way I think it was nice to have a birthday so early in the apocalypse because it was still a novel occurrence and so many of my friends showed their support. Meanwhile if your birthday fell on month 9 of coronavirus lockdown I imagine you got a roll of toilet paper left in your mailbox.

One of my hater Milwaukee coworkers posted this, displaying a shameful amount of jealousy.

Lydia's mom was going to send one of those edible arrangements and I vetoed that. They are just really overpriced. Anyway my economical request was just for some chocolate chips and a few fruits and I would dip them myself.

We got chocolate with three different cacao percentages. It was like a delicious experiment.

Zoe was kind enough to make me a birthday wishes montage. Everything's better with a montage.

Lainey and Chris won the award for longest submission.

Lydia got me a nice bottle of bourbon. It's a blend but like a fancy one.

"We hand-selected and married these bourbon barrels from our inventory to bring out the best characteristics of the whiskey contained in those barrels. It's bottled at cask strength so you can experience the true flavor of our bourbon. Lift your spirits."

Wow Lydia, wow.

I think Linda also got us some fun cocktails in these like reusable Capri Sun pouches.

Had me at "quarantini".

There was a cake, but somebody else got to eat it. Sad!

We then assumed our usual spot on the roof, but surprise guests showed up! It was real fun and exciting.

I got to watch Jenna try to park.

We played...

and I slayed.

It was a pretty darn good birthday under the circumstances.
