Friday Fictioneers – Birthday Surprise
I welcome and encourage all comments and criticisms.
Kate held her father’s hand lovingly as the cellists concluded their recital. The two musicians, dressed smartly in skirt suits, stood to accept the applause with polite curtsies.
“Happy 80th Dad,” Kate said, “did you enjoy the music?”
“Um…it was very nice.”
Kate was a little disappointed that he was not more enthusiastic about the surprise she had arranged. “I thought you’d like this,” she said, “I overheard you telling Uncle James that you would to have love two cellists at your party.”
“Not quite,” came the reply, “I said I wanted a party with two young girls and jello.”
