But Dave is a good person and a great husband. Morley is a great mother and she has lots of patients with Dave. She is also organized and clean. She is also a great wife.

Themes

I think the theme in this story is that no matter how old you are its still fun to have your friends or family celebrate your birthday party. And just have fun and ignore your age. I think its important that people know its your day, its your time to be in the spotlight.
