Happy Pappy Day!

I went to visit my friends Gift and Kimberley last night. That's right, his name is Gift, which is pretty cool, don't you think? Anyway, their children are Zolie, who is 4, and Tando, who is maybe 1-and-a-half. Both of them greeted me with a joyful chorus of "Happy Pappy Day! Happy Pappy Day!"

"Happy Pappy Day?" I said in bewilderment. "What's that?"

Zolie answered, "It's the day we celebrate CAKE!"

Of course! How could I have forgotten? And a Happy Pappy Day to you, too!
