Don’t let Mummy know we asked, but we DESPERATELY need your help.
We have this HUGE problem.
You see, tomorrow is Mummy’s Birthday and we don’t quite know how to get Mummy a cake without her knowing about it.
Consider Scenario 1
We get Daddy to call up a baker and order one. Chances are that Mummy will answer the door.
And she would calmly receive the cake.
‘So my cake is here. Let’s see what you got for me’.
‘NO Mummy. Don’t open it now’.
‘Oh Ok. There are still few more hours to go till midnight and considering the rising temperatures, I’d suggest we keep it in the fridge’.
We go and get it ourselves.
‘So you guys are going out. Give me 10 minutes to get ready’.
‘No Mummy. We are going without you.’
Oh! You mean you don’t want me to see my cake!’
Not cool either.
Daddy goes out alone to get the cake.
‘Where are you going?’
‘Got to go buy a book. I won’t be long.’
Daddy gets the car out instead of his bike that he usually uses when he goes out alone. Obviously, it won’t be advisable to try balancing a cake in insanely busy traffic on a bike.
‘So you are going to get my cake. What did you order?’
‘Cake? What cake?
‘Well. Don’t get a huge one. We are dieting, remember?’
‘I don’t know what you mean. I just need to go get that book’.
If you need to win that game of Poker, make sure Daddy isn’t in your team!
So you see, the countdown to Mummy’s birthday has already begun and we are still cakeless.
Maybe we will just surprise her this time…NO CAKE!
