The day was June 25, 2005, it was so hot outside, and the humidity was off the chart. June 25 just also happened to be my good friend Chase's birthday. My friends Matt, Houston, Mike, Mike, and I were throwing him a surprise party at Matt's house, and he had no idea. We had been waiting for this for a few weeks now, and had everything perfectly planned out. He was turning the big twenty-one so this was a big day for him, and he was extremely excited about it. He talked about nothing but buying alcohol and beer for himself for the past month at least.

- It was a beautiful sunny morning; you could hear the birds singing in the background. I just woke up after a long sleep. It was now 11am and everyone was awake whizzing all around the house and I wondered what all the havoc was about. I came across my mum and asked, “What was going on”. I got no reply. It was like my mum didn’t even see me if I was invisible. After that I could not be bothered to ask because it looked like another busy Sunday morning. Later on the day I was getting bored and nothing was on the skinny TV of ours.... [tags: birthday,]

- All I wanted for my birthday was two brand new plastic storage sheds. One was needed for the yard tools and one for the kids' outdoor toys. I figured it would be safer to store them separately, because I did not really want the children poking around hedge clippers and hatchets just to find a toy. My husband came through and got me the sheds I wanted. I made it a game for the kids to put the toys away: They would open the door and try to throw the toys in from different points in the yard. That works well as long as they remember to shut the door.... [tags: Birthdays, ]

- Leaving the jewelry store at a rather accelerated pace, a common, plain- clothed man with a parcel tucked under his arm jumped into his white, slightly dirtied Ford Bronco. He then hurriedly concealed the package under the front passenger seat making certain to prevent it from being seen from people passing by. He then tore out of the parking lot attempting to avoid drawing attention to himself or his accompanying bundle. He knew it would only be a matter of minutes before the police would be on his trail and he couldn't have them catching him so he would have to make certain he covered all his tracks and make it as difficult as he could for his pursuants as he could....

Everybody's anticipation grew, as we ate, drank, and were merry waiting on Chase's arrival. Some people were having better times than others. You could tell who these people were by how loud they were being, which pretty much meant that the louder people were also the people who had consumed the most alcohol so far. Laughter and conversation filled the atmosphere of the party, and all I could help thinking was this is how I want my twenty-first birthday to be.
Chase finally showed up, and when he got there it was a spectacle to observe. People all formed together to welcome him, and the smile that he had on his face was something to be seen. You could see the emotion coming off of him as he walked up to the party, almost as if he was thinking, someone can pinch me now so I can wake up from this dream. Some had presents, others had wishes of happy birthday, but I think to him, all of us just being there meant enough.
After all of the excitement settled down I knew what to do and said, "Get this man a drink." He must've been thinking the same as me because when I said that he replied, "Amen." I thought to myself as I drank with him, I wonder if beer tastes any different when you're twenty-one. Think about it, the sensation you get from drinking beer most everyone enjoys, but when you are able to go to any store and purchase it for yourself does it actually taste the same, or better?
As the night moved on everybody became pretty intoxicated, including myself. I was at the point to where my whole body felt warm. It could've been the coldest night of the year, but I still would've felt warm all over. It was a perfect night; it could not have gone better. Everyone had such a good time, and I think we even made some money off of the kegs. There's nothing like the feeling of having a good time, but also knowing that you would be going home with a couple extra bucks in your pocket.
The kegs were tapped and everyone started to leave, but that didn't matter. What mattered was what we did for a close friend, and the happiness we brought to him, even for one night. The night was a success, and we had nobody to thank but ourselves. Chase had an awesome birthday, and we had a pretty kick-ass party in the process. A night that I'll remember for a long time from now, and hopefully a night that Chase will remember, too. Turning twenty-one is an awesome year, and I can't be more excited for the opportunity I get to celebrate mine. It isn't for another two years, but when it comes I hope that it turns out a little something like this night.
