Micah: Oh, no, not again!
Taylor: Oh, no, what again?
Buddy: Oh, no, we forgot Cyndi's birthday again.
Micah: This is becoming an annual mistake. Yesterday we were greeted on Facebook with this old memory from 2014 - Cyndi Turns 11.
Taylor: Oh, dear. Back in 2014, her birthday was posted a day late.
Buddy: And this year it's two days late. She turned 13 on the 21st. I'm too embarrassed to face her and admit I forgot again.
Micah: Wait! I know how to save the situation. We'll just re-post the old birthday post. It's still appropriate.
Buddy: Okay, here is Cyndi's flashback birthday post from 2014, when Cameron was still with us.
PERCY: *slaps Cameron in forehead* Atttttttttgh! How stupid!
CAMERON: Hey, what did you do that for? I'm not stupid.
RUSTY: Did he really call you stupid, Cameron?
MARCUS: Yes, he did. I heard him. And he hit Cameron too.
MERCI: Yes, you did do those things, Percy. Why did you hit Cameron in the head?
PERCY: I suddenly realized we've been so busy we totally forgot about Cyndi's birthday yesterday.
BUDDY: But if you suddenly remember something you forgot, Percy, you're supposed to hit yourself in the head, not Cameron.
PERCY: Why would I want to hit myself in the head? That would be ... well, stupid.
MICAH: Never mind that now, guys. We really did forget all about Cyndi's birthday.
SAM: Cyndi, we'd like to apologize for being forgetful. You are very special to us so we got you something special.
CYNDI: Aw, thanks guys. I really ...
BUDDY: *whispers* Pssst, Percy, if we forgot her birthday, when did we get her a present?
PERCY: *whispers* Uh-oh, we forgot to ...
CYNDI: ...appreciate this empty box.
MERCI: It's not really empty, Cyndi. It's filled with ... with ....
MERCI: Love, Cyndi. It's filled with our love.
Taylor: We don't even have a box for you this year, Cyndi, and we didn't realize the cake in the kitchen was for you, so we ... er, nibbled on it, but we are sincere in wishing you the best of everything for your special day, even if it was two days ago.
Cyndi: So I get a recycled birthday post, no cake, no party and no present?
Buddy: *clears throat* Yes, that about sums it up. But the greatest gift is love and we've got lots of that to give you.
Cyndi: Thank you. I appreciate that. Do you suppose you could put it all on an Amazon gift card for me?
Note: Today was going to be our Christmas post, but as you can see something came up and we had a change of plans. We will be posting it tomorrow instead.
We are joining the Pet Parade hosted by Rascal and Rocco, Basil the Bionic Cat, Barking from the Bayou and Owned by a husky.
