This past weekend, one of my dearest friends graduated from the area community college. Weather permitting, I WAS going to attend the ceremony. If weather did not permit, she was only guaranteed 4 tickets so I would not be so bold. However, the weather held (cold and windy as it was but well worth it). After the commencement, a group met for a party. I’m so glad that I was not the only person to bring a gift. We discussed whether I should bring the gift to the restaurant or wait until later. Who am I to listen? I brought it along.
Purchasing the gift was stealth at its best! Easter Sunday before Wicked, my family and I arrived at the theatre before Megan and Carol so I had time to peruse the souvenir stand. I picked up a few things and then saw something that totally caught my eye: a musical snow globe featuring Glinda and Elphaba that plays one of the musical highlights of the show: “For Good.” WHAT AN EXCELLENT GIFT IDEA! I bought it and got it to the van before my friends arrived. Megan asked me why I kept texting them to see how far away they were… now she knows! I’m pretty good with secret keeping but even I was getting antsy because I thought it was such a great idea.
A few days later, Megan posted something to the effect of “Hmm… what to get myself for graduation.” on her facebook page. To which I replied, “What can those of us who are not you get you for graduation?” HAHA!
Isn’t it great to surprise your friends sometimes!? Congratulations Megan! I hope the next step of your journey is filled with joy and fulfillment!
