Birthday Fun

August 3, 2008

It is very quiet in the early morning.

“Presents!” I pounce onto Badger.

His startled eyes fly open to find me nose-to-nose and grinning madly. He groans, speech sleep-slurred, “Alright, alright. Happy birthday.”

“Pre-sents! Pre-sents! Pre-sents!” I cling to him like a limpet and rock the bed from side to side with each syllable.

“Christ, you little bugger! Let me sleeeeeep,” he moans.

He tries to dislodge me but I catch his wrists and fight back. “PRESENTS!!” I yell in his ear.

With a strangled growl, he rolls over and pins me down. He wraps his arms around my wriggling body and hangs on grimly, desperately trying to salvage a few minutes more of sleep.

PREEEEEEESEEEEEEEEEEEENTS!” I howl into the mattress.

    Elbi: My fave is The Arrival! Was so ecstatic when I saw it! The reunion bit gets me all fuzzy every time. And don’t worry about the present if you haven’t got one yet. 🙂 Was really pleased that you made it to the oxford. Thanks for coming!

    Laynie: Spoilt?! Never! And thanks for the birthday wishes!!

    Haha at the height of my skateboarding days, I was able to drop in on a quarter pipe (woot! Lol). I’ve since lost my nerve and teenage bouncing ball-ness. Now I’m relatively confident as long as it’s a straight, smooth road with no obstacles. Hahaha!
