Page 6: Surprise Party!!

So yesterday was a surprise party for a close family friend of my family's . We had the party at my mom and papa's catering hall (not my dad, my papa {two different people}), where I normally work. It was a lot of fun actually. The guy was very surprised and he had a great time. Everyone did. Of course, it wasn't my favorite since I didn't know practically anyone, but I had fun with my mom, and I was helping even though to this particular party I was invited. Yesterday I wrote how I had to go to work. Well, that was a decoy so we could get the birthday guy to get to the place. He was going to drive me there on his way to the bar or something with my dad since his wife also works for my mom. The only problem was he refused to drive his wife to work. (The family has like 4 cars, one for everyone) So I had to stall him for twenty minutes until everything was set up and we could leave. I had to put my game face on. And I am an actress, so I thought "I can keep a straight face for twenty minutes." Those twenty minutes were torture! I had no script so I improved twenty minutes of excuses. And normally, that's fine I can do that from here to tomorrow. But for some reason it was so hard to accomplish. It took everything I had not to laugh. I did get through it though and the guy was surprised and it was great, but i couldn't believe how hard it was for me to stall him for twenty minutes!
