In which we lie ... repeatedly

To plan a surprise 70th birthday party for my Mom whose birthday was yesterday (Sunday, July 3) we all had to tell some fibs ...


Fib #1: "Since we were all together three weeks ago for the cruise, and since last weekend we all returned from trips [Bia to Lake Tahoe, Laura to Myrtle Beach, and David to Haiti] we just need this weekend to recover." said Maria.


Fib #2: "What are we doing on Sunday? We have a church picnic," said Laura.


Fib #3: "How about you come here on Monday instead?" suggested David.


Fib #4: "We'll celebrate your birthday NEXT weekend," all of us said.


Fib #5: "It's my turn to do Sunday lunch, so come here and we'll have a small pre-birthday celebration. But come later -- more toward 1:15 -- because we are biking on the canal in the morning." said Maria, who needed time for everyone to get here before i Nonni.


I don't know how we pulled it off, but we did. Maybe it was all that fibbing ...
