If it's okay, I've got one for me, and one for my coworker.
Yesterday was my birthday, and I spent the first half of it in meetings at a conference, then on a flight home, then on a freeway packed at rush hour. I got home at about 7 knowing that DH and DD were out, so the house was empty.
On the table were two birthday cards (real paper ones!), a note saying my dinner (nicely plated and wrapped up) was in the fridge, and DH's old iPod was sitting on the table with Weird Al Yankovic's "Happy Birthday" song queued up. (My real b-day dinner is tonight, I've been told there will be cake).
My new co-worker started two months ago. She had a hyphenated name, but I heard her identify herself with just part of her last name, so I asked her what she preferred to be called. Her face lit up like a firefly! Turns out she is going through a nasty divorce and going back to her maiden name. Every time I introduce her to someone using the name she prefers, she gets this huge smile.
