Don't you wish you worked with me?

My birthday is next week. When I arrived at work on Monday morning this email was in my inbox (in a beautifully scripted text that I can't get to come through on blogger):

Dearest Desiree,

If you are not yet spoken for, your devoted co-workers ardently wish to dine with you in the luncheon hour of Wednesday next, the nineteenth day of November, at the eating establishment of your choice, to commemorate the approaching anniversary of your celebrated nativity.

Respondez s’il vous plait regarding your availability on the date in question. We await, tremulously and with bated breath, the desired response.

Fondly and Ever Yours,
The Collective Researchers of UC Davis


Of course I couldn't respond with just a simple yes so the following was my reply:

Dear Collective Researchers of UC Davis,

I would be honored to indulge in culinary delights in the presence of such great women. I am pleased to accept your invitation for the nineteenth day of November and look forward to an hour of feasting and heartfelt conversation.

With sincerest appreciation,
Desi


And finally, the invitation to the office:

Dear C.R. of UCD (sadly lacking our studious friend Flora),

Your presence is requested at the nearby Applebee’s Restaurant between noon and 12:10 pm tomorrow, or as soon thereafter as you may happen to arrive. None would be turned away from these festivities for some mere shift of schedule or trick of timing that may prevent absolute punctuality – six chairs shall be reserved for six hale and hearty comrades well met.

Although I'm not overly thrilled about having a birthday, not because I care that I'm turning 35, but because I thought I would be at a different place in my life by 35, it was a wonderful time and a very thoughtful gesture.

Now I just need to come up with a thank you as well thought out as the invitation. :)

It is always nice to be remembered and honored on special occasions by co-workers and to be invited in such a wonderful manner. How fun for you and glad that it was an enjoyable gathering.

That's fun! None of my co-workers take me out for lunch...well, the boy does, but he's 3 and still makes me pay.

35 is staring me in the face. I know how you feel.

Oh Desi, if only I were 35 again!! Looking 10 years back it looks great from here! What a fun place to work, you must love going to work if your pals there are always so clever! They must adore you and all of your talents! Loved the costume post also, and I completely agree, your gorgeous girl should not be allowed to wear make-up she looks so much older! oh, and looking from the outside in, you look like you are in a pretty good place in your life, enjoy it until the next adventure in your life happens and your have a senior graduating-YIKES! where does the time go?
