I asked my dog what she'd like to do for her birthday and she said she had nothing to wear and no money, but wanted to have a nice run by the river and chew a stick or two.
I thought this was a great idea.
I asked my sister and she said her husband had exams, they were moving house soon, work was stressful and she may not get home in time to even have a rest before her birthday was out.
I thought "and you, human, are the smart one?"
