Another birthday party. Another high-energy, high-octane, hebephrenic, hyper-jittery coupla hours of fun.
For Maia. Aged 9 years.
At pick up, greeted by mother of birthday girl:
"Karen, we've decided that Maia must be high on cocaine."
Me, a little stunned and embarrassed: "Oh? Ha! Funny!"
"No. Seriously. Only someone on cocaine can be that hyper."
