“What do you want?” daddy called.
“A BIRTHDAY PARTY FLAVOR!” mummy replied.
I wanted to give mummy something special. Now I knew what she wanted but what flavor is a birthday?
On her special day, “Mummy, this is for you.”
She opened her gift but looked confused.
“It’s chocolate to taste, perfume to smell, a heart picture to see, and music on your iPod. I thought about your senses.”
Mummy smiled, “What about touch?”
I gave her a huge hug, “I hope I got the birthday flavors right.”
Later that day I realized I’d misunderstood. She’d really asked daddy for a birthday favor.
