Betty and Boo are invited to a birthday party on Saturday, which was the topic of conversation at dinnertime last night.
“I know what H. really wants for her birthday,” Betty stated.
“And what would that be?” I said.
The Husband’s response was a half cough, half choking sound as he stood at the sink rinsing dishes. “A what??!” he exclaimed.
“A bikini,” repeated Betty.
(In case you’re wondering, H. is turning 7.)
“We are not,” said The Husband, “getting anyone a bikini.”
“Awww, Daaaaa-aaaaddd! She really wants one.”
“I don’t care what she really wants. We are not buying H. a bikini.”
“She can wear it in late summer,” suggested Betty.
“This is late summer!”
“Allllll-riiiiiighhhhttt,” sighed Betty, rolling her eyes. “What about a Barbie doll instead?”
