Nikita and the Birthday Bouquet
My phone rang shortly after 9 a.m. I could see from the caller ID that it was coming from the front entrance.

"Hello?" says I.

"Birthday surprise for you!" replied the delivery man.

A few seconds later, he was at my front door with a bouquet and a balloon. A bouquet of cookies.

"It is from...let's see...Debi! Just for you. Happy Birthday! Sign here."

Just as he was handing me the cookies, Rocky took the opportunity to run down the hall. He loves doing that, just so I come after him and carry him back like a babe in arms. Meanwhile, Nikita took my brief absence as his cue to taste test the frosting on one of the cookies. Naughty boy!

"Cookie, cookie, cookie is for me!"

What amazing cookies! The colours, the colours... I bet none are natural, but I don't care. So cheerful. The Brits just don't get cookies at all.
