From: AJ Singh
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Sorry I couldn’t make it to the party today. Work work work as always. Hope you had a fantastic time and remember — you’re not old yet! I’ll let you know when you are, but I’m fairly certain it won’t be for years yet.
[Enclosed is a small “frosted” dog biscuit for Mystee. At least, AJ hopes Roni realizes it’s for Mystee.]
