Weekend Birthday Parties
It’s Friday, which means tomorrow starts a brand new weekend! Besides recess and soccer and playing cowboys with my friends, I like weekends the best!
I was just thinking about that weekend I was invited to Mary Jane’s birthday party. At first this seemed like an OK idea because even though Mary Jane’s a girl, she’s alright and birthday parties can be loads of fun with all of the cake you can eat and the games you can play.
Of course, when you go to a birthday party there isn’t always such a great gang as Alec and Geoffrey and Eddie and Rufus and all them, but I didn’t expect to be the only boy at Mary Jane’s party! It was all girls in pink dresses with lots of frills!
Mary Jane’s was nothing like the parties I’d been to before: no cops and robbers or kicking around the soccer ball. Do you remember some of the things we did at Mary Jane’s birthday party? I’ll give you a hint: one of them made me look like a right fool!
Even though I was the only boy at the party it wasn’t all that bad. The food was the best part because they had little cookies and chocolate milk and cake. What’s your favorite part about birthday parties?
