Everyone: Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday Dear Annnndreeeeuuuwwwwww!!!!!! Happy Birthday to youuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!


Andrew: Touring Hollywood, watching a Major League Baseball game with the Angels playing the Dodgers , playing tennis, free champagne at Polo, hiking Painted Canyon and Thousand Palms, hanging out at Manhattan Beach and a birthday party. Wow. Thanks everyone.

Everyone: You’re welcome.

Grandma: Open up our presents.

Andrew: Knitted cap, Houston Astros Baseball cap. Computer stand. Thank you. And…. what are these?


Grandma: They’re toe socks.

Andrew: Really?

Grandma: They’re the latest thing. Spencer (Andrew’s trendy Uncle) said so.

Andrew: Is that right? Thank you.

Grandpa: Don’t forget, Andrew, when you open clothes, you have to put them on. It’s tradition.

Andrew: True. But It’s too hot for socks. It must be 30 degrees ( 86 F) in here. How about I put on the hat you knitted for me instead?

Grandma: Don’t be silly.

Andrew: I don’t think they’ll fit.

Grandma: Of course they will. One size fits all.

Andrew: But, toe socks creep me out. (Shivers)  Ughhhhh!!!!

Grandma: No, they don’t. Put them on.

Everyone: Put them on! PUT THEM ON!!!!!!

Andrew: You know what? I have a great idea. I’m going to put these toe socks on despite being grossed out by the material sticking to each individual toe. Euhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…


Grandma: How do you like them?

Andrew: I’m not going to lie, I don’t like them. They feel really weird.


Grandma: They’re not weird. 

Andrew: I’m sweating already. I’ve got to take them off. 

Grandma: Leave them on. You’ll get used to them. Anyway, there’s more. Roy?

Grandpa: Here you go. One’s for your Birthday and the other’s for your upcoming Wedding Celebration. There’s a little something in there to help take the sting out of the wedding.

Andrew: Wow! Thanks Grandpa and Grandma… Hang on. This card’s still in it’s plastic wrapper.


Grandma: I know.

Andrew: And they’re not signed. Do you want to take them back and sign them?

Grandma: No.

Andrew: No? Why?

Grandma: We just recycle them.

Andrew: So I…?

Grandma: Read them and give them back so I can give them to someone else. Besides,  it’s the thought that counts. Now, how are those toe socks doing?
