Unexpected Birthday

I can’t believe it, but I have forgotten my very own birthday!  How wrong is this?  Sad but true, and this is how it all played out.

Waking  up, I thought today was just going to be another ordinary day , but...NO WAY!  Unexpectedly, my mum shouted, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY SON!!!”  I stood where I was, completely confused and wondered aloud, “What in the world are you talking about?” “Ahhh ,it is MY birthday,” I said as I smacked myself on the side of the head.

When I finally got up, I was as hungry as a grizzly bear  that had missed out on its’ dinner.  It felt like I was going to starve to death, but fortunately, there was some outstanding news that would save me.  I rushed to the shower,  got dressed, and set out to annoy my mum by asking her  repeatedly, “Can we go now?”   She eventually agreed, and we hopped in the car .  We were on our way.

I saw something in the distance and wondered what it was.  As we got closer ,I saw the sign more clearly,“Happy Days!” It is a restaurant, and my growling stomach is more than a little excited. Closer, closer, almost there now. I opened the door and there it was, my best friend.  I grabbed  a plate and walked over  to the buffet to say hello.   Good to see you Butter Chicken!  Where have you been Hot Crispy Chips?

I love my friends!
