Birthday Thanks


Krissy, about to perform atrocities on a poor defenseless birthday cake. For those of you who have not met her, this is also the look you get when you displease her. Don't make Krissy angry. You wouldn't like it when she's angry.

Krissy, however, did wish to extend a "thank you" to everyone who wished her happy birthday; she was delighted by your birthday greetings. She'd offer you a piece of the cake, but... well. Let's not speak of the cake. Let's not speak of the cake ever again.

Wow...Mom has a look like that, and Athena still doesn't respond to "Because I said so?"

Brave little girl, that Athena...

I didn't say she didn't respond to that when Krissy says it.

I think a pointy knife and angry eyes trumps logic 5 out of 5. Athena's a smart girl to have learned this so young.

Not to be maudlin, but your relationship with your wife reminds me of my relationship with mine. We're lucky men, Mr. Scalzi, and you can pass that message along to Krissy.

(And if that doesn't bring a smile to her face, tell her my wife and I bought five of your books in the last six months. As the bookkeeper, that should get a certain amount of grinnage.)

I'm sure that cake deserved everything it got. Bad, wicked, NAUGHTY cake.

Dammit, I missed the big day. Happy birthday, Krissy -- and many many more.

Now I believe I was promised cake?

Is that red thing on the cake... cream, or blood? I am scared.

Now see...if you'd just taken that cake to a Purity Ball in the first place, it wouldn't have gotten itself into such a mess.

Do not taunt Happy Fun Krissy.
