Best Surprise Party Ever.

About a month ago, my girlfriend told me to make sure that I didn't make any plans for today. Said her family had plans, sister was visiting from Boston, going to spend the day with them. So today arrives, and we're heading to wherever we're going, and things kind of look familiar. I said I kind of knew the area, and she asked how. I told her how I had once played at a paintball field that was just a little ways up the road from where we were at the time. So she said, "where's the field?"

Say what? "Are we playing paintball?"
"Maybe..."

So we arrived at the field, and as we entered the office, SURPRISE! About a dozen friends were waiting for us. I had no idea. Until I saw everyone, I thought we'd be playing with her family. My birthday's next week, but I wasn't expecting anything even remotely like this. To make a long story short, my girlfriend had been planning since August, organized the whole thing, got enough people together (16 total) for a private party, and kept me in the dark the whole time. She's awesome. Probably about 3/4 of our group had never played before, but everyone seemed to catch on pretty quickly, and everyone had a good time, even a few people I didn't think would particularly enjoy paintball. Perfect afternoon, and the best surprise party ever.

She played, and did pretty well. Had one really good game, scored the final two kills.

Paintball with friends- that's a great birthday present! I'm glad, and a bit envious, it was such a great time.

Seems like most of the girls I talk to think paintball is stupid, nerdy, and as one put it "only a thing kids do for their birthday when they are too old for clowns and too young to drink".

Very cool Diomedes. It has been a long time since I played in a private play group but they are always a lot of fun.
