The greatest gift of all

So Sara turned 31 today. We went out for take-away sushi and took it away to a bench.

Sara had a touch of the birthday blues: "I'm so old", she kept screaming, "old, old, old. And fat. And old." I tried my best to comfort her, saying things like: “Yes, but you have a nice personality”, and “stop screaming, you fat cow, people are watching us”, but nothing helped.

After the sushi we ran a few errands. Since we're having some friends over tonight, Sara went into the state liquor store (Finnmärk has a state alcohol monopoly – don’t ask) to buy a carton of their finest red wine. She went in shuffling her feet, but came out swinging a plastic bag, skip jumping and whistling the theme from Love Boat. The birthday blues had mysteriously evaporated.

What had happened to make this amazing transformation? The woman at the counter had asked Sara for her ID.
