The Answer Came Knocking at the Door.

Literally.
Chicken asked me to be home today between 2-5pm because there was a delivery I needed to sign for--something for my birthday.
At 3pm, the intercom buzzed and I let said delivery person up.
I opened the door to find a female delivery person.  Baffling.  
"Where is the package?  Where are the flowers or whatever it is you have for me", I am thinking.
She's not handing me anything.
She has a suitcase and a camera.

"This is weird," I'm thinking, "Are we doing a photo shoot?  Is that what the suitcases are for?  Are we doing costumes?  Damn, I need to wash my hair..."
"Do you have a delivery for me?"  I ask and I finally focus ON the person instead of looking for my package and .......

HOLY SHIT!!!!

She raises the camera and takes a photo of my reaction of seeing her, really seeing her.
My best friend since I was a junior in high school is here for 4 days.
Chicken flew her up for my birthday.

Guess who has a really good reason not to attend family drama birthday dinner??!!

Chicken is the best.  Wow, what a great birthday present.  Thank you wonderful Chicken.
