Happy Birthday, Cara Lee!
CARA: Hi, little sister.
KATIE: It's your birthday today!!
CARA: Yes, I know.
KATIE: Aren't you excited to be a year older!?
CARA: Um, sure. Don't I look excited?
KATIE: No, not really. LOOK AT ME! I'm bursting with joy over the fact that it's your birthday! Even my doll looks happy!
CARA: I'm smiling! I have a plate of food! What more do you want?
KATIE: I don't know! I guess I want you to come home! I miss my big sister!
CARA: I miss you too. But I'm a big success here at my job in Virginia, AND moving back across the country is a lot of work. I had planned to spend my birthday in my pajamas. See, I'm wearing them now.
KATIE: Oh, all right. I'll just continue to look up admiringly at my big sis from afar.
Happy birthday, Car-parts! We miss you so much!
