Child:It’s my birthday next week. I’m so excited. I can hardly wait for the day to come at last. Can I organize a party this year, too?
Mum: Yes, of course. It’s your big day. Time flies so fast. I can’t believe that you are going to turn 10 already. Where would you like to throw a party? In McDonald’s maybe?
Child: Come on, Mum. McDonald’s is old hat. And it’s only for small kids. It’s sooo boring. My classmates would just laugh at me if I invited them to a party there.
Mum: Where then? I remember last time you went to a birthday party it was in a bowling alley. It was fun, wasn’t it?
Child: Yes, but we’ve been there a lot recently. Let’s do something special. Can I have my birthday in an escape room? Or when James had his party we were laser tagging. Can I have that, too, Mum, can I?
Mum: Well, those are pretty expensive places. I don’t think we can afford to go there this year. Maybe next year we will put aside some money for that. But you know what? Let’s throw a garden party at home, for a change. That could be fun. We could play games with the water hose and the slide. Your daddy is so good at inventing games.
Child: OK, thanks, Mum. How many kids can I invite?
Mum: The garden is big enough. Ten or twelve maybe?
Child: Can it be eighteen? There are eighteen boys in my class and I would like to invite all of them. I will get eighteen presents then. Yippee!
Mum: All right. I hope everybody will behave themselves. What food would you like? Sandwiches? Biscuits?
Child: Noo…. Pizza and ice cream, please. And chocolate cake. Can we have soda?
Mum: Just fruit juice and water, I’m afraid. But it will be pizza, ice cream and chocolate cake then.
Child: Thank you, Mum. You are the best mum in the world.
