Happy Birthday, Kid


By John Kraft

“What d’ya mean, ‘Bring bail money’?”

“I mean, in case things get ugly.”

“But it’s a birthday party for a 6-year-old.”

“Yeah? Remember last year’s party?”

“Good point. What about a gift? What should I bring?”

“If you’ve got a speed loader – bring it.”

“A speed loader – for a 6-year-old?”

“No. For yourself, just in case. For the kid? Give her a Starbucks card.”

“The kid drinks coffee?”

“No, but Mommy and Daddy do. The kid gets a cookie. Everybody’s happy – unless …”

“I’ll bring bail money and my speed loader.”

10 PM. BYOB. Be there!”
