birthday cake in celebration of my birthday on Sunday by noting smirky-type
grins on the faces of several co-workers, the door to my office was closed

loud and clear, and shoved the birthday cake through the window, knocking
over the coffee pot that was on the window sill and spilling water allover
the floor! In spite of the mess, I appreciate your thoughtfulness. As they
say in Hawaiian, "Mahalo."
