Last year, a friend and I planned on making a surprise trip to New York City to visit one of our best friends. We got super excited planning the trip, searching for tickets, and imagining the look on our friend's face when we arrived on her doorstep grinning ear to ear.
That is, until my friend's boyfriend asked us if we were out of our minds. "Think about it," he said. "Maybe she'll have other plans your visit will force her to cancel, maybe her apartment is messy, it's not a good time for her. . .or what if she just doesn't like surprises?"
He harshed our mellow, but I did think about it. I don't like unexpected guests, and as much as I like to think I'm fun — I'm actually not all that spontaneous unless I'm initiating a plan. Are you someone who appreciates surprise birthday parties, friends showing up on your doorstep unannounced, or surprises in general?
