He asked for it...

...subtitled the evil mom strikes again.

Frank's 18th birthday was pretty low key. He got his homework done, then we went out for a nice steak dinner at a local restaurant that became famous in a movie. We gave him a check, because he couldn't think of anything he wanted.

I made a cake for him to have with his friends on Saturday. I asked him how he wanted the cake decorated, and he said, "Surprise me." I really wish he wouldn't do that.

But he and his friends left for most of the day and never had the cake. Around dinner time I finally thought of how to surprise him with the cake. He asked for it.

And from his grandmother, "Good joke! I bet he laughed.

I recognize the "you are special" plate. What a lovely daisy-chain
of specialness there is in the 25 year life of that plate. Once
again, you are to be commended."
