"She must be spunky."

I was checking on the backup server when my phone rang. "Eric, I need you to come up here right now!" the receptionist said curtly into phone. I told her I would be right there, She had a tone in her voice that let me know there was something wrong and she needed my help right then. I hung up an hurried up to the words, "oh no" muttered under my breath. As I rounded the conference room I could see her back, she was looking up. I followed her line of sight to a huge pillar of balloons. I stopped and started to take it in. Slowly it clicked in my head and I read "Happy Anniversary" written across most of the balloons.

"Oh no," I said again only this time it was audible. The balloon delivery lady handed me a card and waited patently for me to open it. I looked at the card knowing already that it was from Tom. "Is it your anniversary with the company?" the receptionist asked. "No, today is our five year anniversary." The balloon delivery lady chimed in, "She must be Spunky!" I smiled looked at the receptionist and opened the card since the balloon lady clearly wasn't leaving until she saw the look on my face when I opened the card. After I opened and read it, she left satisfied.

By this time a few people had gathered to see what the giant pillar of balloons complete with a Purple monkey balloon was all about. One coworker noticed that the purple monkey matched the one on the shirt I was wearing today. I also matched the color of my face. I prefer to be the one who pops in and out of the spotlight. I don't like it to fall on me for this long and I was apparently blushing up a storm and the girls were loving it.

As i herded the balloons down the hallway I picked up more people attention. One of my coworkers insisted on taking photos of me with the balloons.

Oh wow. That's absolutely adorable!

And yes, your coworkers will be teasing you for months. At least mine did when I blushed up a storm at good news.

HA HA HA! That's awesome! Happy 5th Anniversary. And five years is quite an achievement, for sure!

You look so adorable all purple in the face. You really have that gay coordination thing down to a pat. You even knew when you'd be surprised with the same color balloons as your shirt and face!

I'm impressed. ;)

Nice, even if it was a little embarassing.

I worked with a guy who not only got balloons, but it was a group delivering them - along with a singing telegram. He was most embarrased.

What's ridiculous was the controversy over it after the Janet Jackson incident. The wanted me to take it down because of all the nipples, but that is why I loved it. They made me replace it with a censored one, the very first nipple was Photoshoped out of the picture. When motivational posters are censored.... “Have a nice day” indeed!
