There was a clutter and a clang followed by a burst of song. Purply pink flowers in a beautiful arrangement and the aroma of hot dogs. French fries, corn dogs, wrappers and ketchup packets litter the conference room table. Work, step aside! Crack open a beer? Why not?! It is an unexpected birthday celebration brought by friends with hearts the size of my appetite for hot dogs.
