Look Stevie, what came in the mail today! An invitation from Deanna at 'Timeless Things' to her birthday party! Can you believe it? I have been wanting to meet her and Marshall in person for so long! She sent you one too!!! Do you want to go? Can you get off work? I can ask for a couple of days off and if they say 'no', I can just...go anyway! I have to go! I have to go and wish her a Happy Birthday in person!
"Think,think,think!" "I know that I can come up with something! I just gotta go! I can sell something, I can make her a gift, I can cook her something! I can take out a loan! Oh no...my banker said that I can't do that! "
"I know! I've got a great idea! I will call Deanna an ask her if we can bring our friends because I don't want to hurt their feelings. She will understand that we can't cancel on Fred's birthday outing! She knows that I don't like hurting anyones feelings. Why didn't I think of this before? Stevie, give me that phone."
"Hello Marshall, This is Lee Laurie from A Southern Rose. May I please speak to Deanna for a minute?"
"Thanks Stevie, You are so sweet!" "I knew that you would make sure that I got to go and meet Deanna!"
"Oh no! Ethel, what are we going to wear? What are we going to get her for a birthday gift? Money has been so tight lately! We have to think of something!"
