Mr. Dufus, my dearest friend,
It’s your birthday today, which I’m sure you’re painfully aware of by now. We all love you and your wonderful puns, you liven up the blogosphere (horrible word, that), and your wit and humour never fail to make me smile. There is nothing I want more than to celebrate this day with you.
I realise, of course, that I’m in a faraway land in a distant time zone with weird food and odd languages, and I won’t be able to make it to Canada for the party. I do, however, have a birthday present for you.
Several, in fact.
Twenty, to be more precise.
I’m going to need you to count them out for me, and remember to thank me for each one.
And afterwards, we can have a glass of bubbly together. I'll even bake a cake.

Damn... I hate it when you go to a birthday party and the guest of honor doesn't open the presents while you're there. I demand to know what's in that package! (Probably more of those Finnish Fish?)ReplyDelete
What a weird coincidence, but it's my birthday today too. And tomorrow. And the next day. And the next...ReplyDelete
You're brilliant Ziva! John's going to love every one of those 20 lashes. I expect you'll be wearing some sexy stilettos while you're giving his gifts.ReplyDelete
Um....I'm sure MY birthday package was lost in the mail. Or maybe Evil Twin......ReplyDelete
Sigh. I'll take a sip of that bubbly if you guys saved any.
Happy Birthday to the Dufus.
OOOhhhhhhh......There's a present (well 20...to be precise) that Dufus won't forget anytime soon. You really know how to make a birthday memorable.ReplyDelete
Like Ian Dury once said, "Hit me with your rhythm stick, hit me, hit me, hit me..." Thanks for the kind wishes, Ziva. This is turning into the best birthday ever.ReplyDelete
20 what? I'm in the dark here. Have we yelled surprise yet? HA!ReplyDelete
It took me awhile, but I understand now. I'm not all that swift on Sunday mornings ;)ReplyDelete
I'm not sure you want to know what's in that package, but you're free to come watch if Dufus says it's okay. ;)ReplyDelete
I really love the way your mind works.ReplyDelete
Absolutely I will, it won't be the same without them.ReplyDelete
Oops, let me go check on the status of your package... In the meantime, there's enough bubbly for everyone, even Evil Twin.ReplyDelete
Hehe, I try my best. ;)ReplyDelete
Happy birthday, my friend. :)ReplyDelete
I wasn't sure poor Dufus could take 61... I'm positive you could take 50, though.. ;)ReplyDelete
Heh, twenty lashes, of course. ;)ReplyDelete
I hope you woke up when you realised what I was talking about?ReplyDelete
Now Ziva, what are you up to?ReplyDelete
20 lashing, eh?!!ReplyDelete
Great post, Ziva for a great guy! John really does spread happiness to all of us!
Cake and bubbly. I wanna come to YOUR house for my birthday!!!ReplyDelete
I'll admit that I had to read through the comments to understand the "20 gifts" - even though I'm sure I don't know the whole story behind that and maybe not want to - but, in the infamous words of Devo, "Whip it ... whip it good".ReplyDelete
Why, P.J, surely you've figured it out. ;)ReplyDelete
He sure does. He deserves every single one of those lashings. ;)ReplyDelete
You're extremely welcome to come over, Katherine! Let me know what kind of a cake you want, and I'll make it happen. ;)ReplyDelete
Heh, whip it, indeed. I don't know how the joke started, but I think Dufus might enjoy it nevertheless. ;)ReplyDelete
