Recently my Father-in-law celebrated his 75 Birthday!! My Brother-in-Law called us and asked if we would put together a family video wishing Tatay (father in Filipino) a Happy Birthday. Yes, of course we would! And if you know us then you are aware that in our family we simply could not let a Birthday slip by without singing the Happy Birthday song! C’mon, we have kids and a Birthday just isn’t a BIRTHDAY without the BIRTHDAY song.
We were set….or maybe not. Our oldest had just taken a shower and was wearing a face full of zit cream. Not to worry. She had this, no problem. Just watch. We rounded up our gang and created our masterpiece.
Rowdy. Animalistic. Raw. Loud. Chaotic. Unpolished. Just some immediate adjectives that come to mind. But it causes your lips to smile right? Our daughter was proud of her improvisation. Smart huh? We thought so and off went the video via the internet to the Philippines. We just knew it would make Tatay’s Birthday.
WELL what my brother-in-law failed (epic fail) to inform us was the fact that they were having a HUGE, spell it H-U-G-E gala event for the birthday boy in honor of his 75 years of life. They were going to play the video on the big movie screen at the event. A lot of people were there…WATCHING. Waiting. Strangers, whom we have never met were viewing our family HOWL and….other things. Don’t you think that may have been important to know beforehand?
But wait. As if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, take a look a the video my brother-in-law sent……
Wow. I am speechless. What a video. I am at a loss for words and must end this post now.
Isn’t there a saying about PAYBACK???
