A Funny Thing Happened At The Birthday Party
Demetria, Hannah's friend from school, celebrated her birthday party at Cici's Pizza today, along with her sister and brother who also celebrate birthdays this month. Everyone was having a great time eating pizza and talking. When the cakes were brought out, Shan, Demetria's mom, put candles on both cakes. Little did she know, they were magic candles. You know, the ones that light back up after being blown out. She has some for Demetria and Miracle on one cake and more on RJ's cake. As you well know, when the kids tried to blow them out, the candles wouldn't stay out. The kids kept blowing and blowing to no avail. Brian, Demetria's dad, was trying to put them out with condensation on his glass. Some would go out but others would light up. It was so funny!! The room was getting smoky, the kids and adults were laughing and we tried everything we could think of to keep the candles out. Finally, Brian took his cup and just sat it on top of the different candles, pushing them into the cake. FINALLY they went out for good. The manager had to open the door to let the smoke out. When she walked by, she said the sprinklers had been ready to go off when she opened the door. That bit of news set the parents to laughing again. After it was all over, I remembered from parties past that you need to drop the candles in water for them to stay out. Maybe next time we will remember. It was a great, and very memorable, party for all!
