On Saturday I told you about my little sister dropping a big hint about my birthday present, and my big brother reminded me of my slip-up a few days before. 😛 Here’s how my blunder went down. (BTW–I rarely goof up like this. I’m actually really good at keeping secrets. 🙂 )
Carol, the girls, and I had gone shopping for Christen’s birthday presents a couple weeks ago. One of the things we had bought her was a bag of Milky Ways. Because of some traveling and sickness, we celebrated the day after Christen’s birthday; and since I was going to make the birthday dessert, Christen and I were discussing what she wanted for her dessert. This was our conversation (before she got the bag of Milky Ways).
Me: So what do you want for your birthday dessert?
Christen: Oh, I dunno.
Me: I could make key lime pie.
Christen: Ooh, that would be good!
Me: Or I could make that cream cheese dessert thing-y.
Christen: Oh yeah. That would be good too.
Me: We could put strawberries on it…. Or how about chopping up some Milky Way and putting that on top?
Christen: Mmm! But we would have to go buy some Milky Way.
Me: We could just use yours.
Christen: Uh, I have only four.
Me: Oh! Yeah…. hehe. Oops. 😉
