Eventually the concoction was dished up in great dollops onto all the plates and mostly assembled in front of all the invited guests. The other plates had left their contents on the floor and had now spread from the kitchen to the dining room. The invited guests stared into space as usual.
The tea party was a great success, as evidenced by the joyful footprints all over the couch and leading into every other room of the house. The occasion was Manatee's 2nd birthday. Last month he turned 7 with a similar amount of cleaning to be done.
I wonder how old he will be next month?
