Something possessed him when his birthday approached. Instead of his 32-year-old self, Rudy suddenly became a six-year-old, demanding his rewards for gracing this world with his presence. Well, indeed! Why shouldn't he get presents for his presence? And why shouldn't he make his demands in every language? Por ejemplo, he loved Spanish, and they were a giving people. His battle cry of "Give me my presents!" became more lyrical to his ears--and he hoped to others--when he changed it to ¡Dame mis regalos!
At the very least, someone could fix him some huevos con chorizo for breakfast.
