I generally hate surprises. Let’s be fair: they usually suck (“SURPRISE! I PUT PLASTIC MOTHS ALL OVER YOUR BATHROOM! Isn’t that hilar- … why are you convulsing?”) But this surprise? It put me in a damn good mood. Heck, it might last all day.
And that, in and of itself, is pretty surprising. In a good way.
