The best birthday gift

Dear One and  Friend were searching through the graphic novels section of a bookstore, looking for a birthday present for me.

"What about this one?" Friend asks.

"She's read it," Dear One replies.

"And this one?"

"On our shelves."

"How about this one?"

"She has it."

"Don't tell me, this one, too, right?"

"Uh. Yeah."

Hands thrown in air.

"Why does your mom have to be such a nerd?"

It warms the cockles of my heart, it does.
