Sara: Come on! We need to buy all of the things we need for Gabriel’s party before the store closes.

Paul: Are you sure we need a party? Maybe we can just have a cake and some party hats.

Sara: Are you kidding?! We are going to pull out all the stops. We’ll have streamers, balloons, noisemakers, and party favors. This is going to be really fun.

Paul: I don’t even know if he’d like all that. What are you doing?

Sara: I’m getting lots of confetti to throw when we sing “Happy Birthday.”

Paul: The confetti is going to get all over the ice cream and the icing on the cake. And it’ll be a nightmare to clean up.

Sara: Don’t worry about the clean up. I’ll take care of that. Now, where are the goodie bags...

Paul: Are you sure all of this is necessary?

Sara: Of course, it is. Ooo...What do you think of hiring a clown and renting an inflatable castle for the party?

Paul: You do remember that Gabriel is turning one, don’t you?

Sara: So?

It’s just as I suspected. Some birthday parties aren’t for the children. They’re for the adults who never grew up!
