As a “family,” I want to start celebrating everyone’s birthday because each student is special to us.
I increased the suspense, bringing out more items from the bag as clues. First the lighter, then the candles. Eventually I opened the box, hoping to surprise the young girl with the cutest Hello Kitty cake ever.
Instead, I was astounded by my stupidity. In my eagerness to bring the cake to the class, I must have toppled the cake while cycling. I quickly checked the other box (there’s a second birthday girl for the next class) but alas, Lady Luck wasn’t smiling at me.
