No …

It was not my birthday on September 25th, 2014. My birthday is actually a week before Christmas. December is a terrible month to have a birthday in. It’s too cold and everyone had Christmas rush on their minds.

After decades of battling with this winter holiday, I've given up on trying to organize anything special for my birthday. There’s two things that I hate doing: 1) being openly selfish, expecting my silly whims to be catered to and 2) being a bother by interrupting the busyness of everyone else’s life with these silly whims. There’s no point in bothering others with a day of selfishness when everyone is too busy to be silly with you.

So, birthdays flew by, lazily “celebrated” with token dinners and coffee meetups. Then, Darling, the best gift giver ever, decided to change that ...

After the Bridal Expo, I still had 14 or so cartons of unopened, cold, and yummy milk. I'm lactose intolerance, so downing 14 cartons of milk would probably kill me - I'm too peasant to throw them away :D So I tried to return it to Safeway and the assistant manager refused to accept the return.

I understand that accepting milk returns is risky, so the milk returns would just be trashed. It would be such a waste to throw away so many cartons of milk!

So, Darling had a wonderful idea and in the late hours of Tuesday night, he was able to organize a pop up event for me.

On Wednesday, I popped up at a City of Calgary office building and sold coffee to the employees for a "donate what you can" price. 100% of all sales went straight to United Way!

During that lunchtime, we raised $461 and went through 13 cartons of milk! Most lattes were served with the United Way logo as latte art, but I did receive a few requests for Daleks, Robocop, Pikachu, and Hello Kitty.

It was terribly funny because the last minute email that was sent out to advertise for the event claimed that a world class barista was going to make coffee. So, I heard a lot of sarcastic comments about this OTT claim when people were ordering their drink, but when they took their first sip, they realized that their coffee wasn't no where comparable to "office coffee". It really was world class - that's what I do :)

So, Wednesday was a super special treat for everyone and everyone was more than happy to donate to a great cause like United Way - when I was in elementary school, I was one of the kids that relied on United way for breakfasts and lunches, so it was great to give back!
