Chapter 4, Page 24 Thirteen Candles

Mary goes manic for presents.

Okay... Her birthday (as well as mine) is actually tomorrow. But that's a Saturday and my update schedule calls for a post of Friday. So it's a day early. I'm sure Mary doesn't mind. ^_^

How does one "act their age" anyway? Usually it seems to mean not having any fun.

"She's your daughter."

How often I've heard that!

Thanks for MQC!

And how often I've heard "You're his daughter."

You're welcome.

I can just imagine Mary's parents arguing over whose daughter you are in the mornings.

Mary's mom: Oh, honey, she's awake. Get up, she's your daughter.

Mary's dad: What time is it? Before 12 PM, she's your daughter. I take the afternoon shift.

@Journo: I wouldn't be surprised! ^_^ That exchange also reminds me of Calvin and Hobbs. A comic I identify with a great deal.

I thought you would identify with Calvin and Hobbes. MQC does sort of remind me of it, even though it has its own unique twist and charm to it.

@Journo: There are many parallels, certainly. I suppose this is what happens when you have a very imaginative kid in the lead roll.
