The Eve of Kelsey’s 25th Birthday

Posted on November 24, 2015 by under Events.    

Here are some pictures taken on the eve of Kelsey’s 25th birthday.

Kelsey hit the birthday jackpot. Her birthday is November 11, Veterans Day, one of the holidays we actually observe at work. She gets her day off every year without having to use a personal day or vacation. It’s a great holiday for a birthday because it’s not a major holiday; so unlike when your birthday falls on Valentines or Christmas, you don’t get gypped on presents. You get all of the perks and none of the downsides.

I love hanging out with these two millennials. They make me feel not quite as old as I am. Although, they’re constantly giggling about something and I don’t quite understand it.

I don’t usually drink with coworkers but we were celebrating Kelsey’s birthday. I wasn’t going to be the lone party pooper.

They have this really yummy shark drink.

I have no idea where the mustaches came from.

We had our team building event in Kansas City on Veterans Day so I didn’t get to go home during the week. I pretty much just stayed up there (Lawrence on Monday and Tuesday night; and then Kansas City on Wednesday night) until Thursday. I had thought about going home on Tuesday and then driving back up for the team building activity on Wednesday but that was going to be way too much driving back and forth and didn’t make any sense. Plus, it’s not like Brian had Veterans Day off. He would be at work anyway so it wasn’t like I was going to see him. That made the decision wait until Thursday to come home much easier. And, I had the opportunity to hang out with these fine people and celebrate with Kelsey which wouldn’t have been possible had I gone home on Tuesday. It worked out great.

    Please look up the meaning of the word gypped.

    I was using gypped as in – so you don’t get cheated on presents. People around these parts probably use the word differently than I do. I’ve attached the a link to the definitions.
