Birthday Present

Not at all related to my birthday, my company brought in In-N-Out Burgers for everyone for a company lunch. (This is a thoroughly toned-down luncheon, in keeping with the economic climate.) Part-way through the lunch, one of the organizers said that everyone should look under their seats, because there were prizes randomly distributed throughout the seats. Although there wasn't one under my chair, the seat next to me was vacant, and when I looked under it, found an envelope, and by finders-keepers it was mine. It was a $10 gift card from Target stores. A pleasant coincidence, getting a gift on my birthday like that. As a co-worker said, "Hey, now you can buy some new socks."
