I've done plenty of surprises in my life. And for some reason, they don't always go as planned. Something always manages to go wrong. But let me tell you, this surprise was PERFECT. So allow me to share with you how well this went.
That face. Does it not speak for itself?
When the surprisee realizes he's been duped. And the surpriser is giddy because success!
The surprisee is still in shock but manages to put on a brave face, because he still has no idea what's happening.
So much going through his head. Why? How? When? What?
And then it's revealed. Emotions run high and the moment begins to sink in.
And even now when all has been said and done there is still an element of shock and awe because the surprisee still can't believe what has just happened and none of it has really sunk in.
Give the man a moment.
This was a perfect surprise.
