Is on Sunday.

She will be 38, if my math is right.

I wonder what kind of cake she's getting.

"Cake", singular?

There's a least a family cake and a work cake, and I wouldn't put it past T to have a little something special tucked away.

Daphne is loved, and therefore well fed.

"Danny, that's good," his mother said, sounding strange and strained and cautious. "What's--"

"His name's Grayson. He works for the State Department."

Somehow, I can't imagine her dad being the birthday type.

Her dad's not her whole family, though, is he? And T's family might be going to arrange something.

Her dad is, yeah, her whole family. Brother and mom both dead when she was a teenager.

And nobody in T's family lives anywhere close.

Doesn't mean T's family wouldn't set something up long-distance...

(Something I once did, for a Mother's Day when I was 1200 miles away - sent money to a friend who lived in the same area my mother did, for purchase of flowers and a taking-out-to-dinner... who, me, sneaky? Oh, yeah...)

I suspect Chaz cake, possibly twice, is the most likely of those. Really, is T. even going to try to compete on that turf? Or is she gonna go for a backrub instead?

Secretly get ChazCake[TM], present as TCake?  Perhaps she could come on board as Cake Consultant, as she knows the recipient best?

But yes, Birthday Backrub may be the best plan.

Chaz and T plot cake together, of course!

But who makes the requisite "the cake is a lie" joke?

Only twice?

Cake for all and sundry in the office. Chaz
Separate cake for the Beta so he doesn't eat all of cake 1. Chaz
Cake for Harpy and T so they can have something together without sharing it with all and sundry (and the Beta). Chaz
Cake for T to feed to Harpy in intimate privacy. Subcontracted to Chaz

I suspect Chaz's oven is working overtime.

I thought I was done with this thread for now, but I moved on to check facebook after SU, and promptly found myself facing a picture of Chocolate Guiness Cake Seems like it might go down well!

I keep forgetting that Daphne and one of my daughters share a birthday.  I should be able to remember that fact, but it keeps dropping out.  Yes, the prompt on LJ is a good reminder to go wish my daughter a Happy Birthday.
