Guess what?! I've just been given my best assignment EVER! A girl named Abby Jensen has made a wish list!
Not just any wish list. It's 16 Wishes she wants to come true all on one day: her 16th Birthday. I haven't seen the list yet, so I don't exactly know what kind of a ride we're in for, but I can't WAIT for Abby's Birthday Morning so I can get started!
Sometimes I get someone's birthday wish in advance. That's fun too, since it gives me time to plan. But Abby's Wish List is a mystery. She keeps it in her closet, so I'm assuming no one's ever seen it. Well, maybe her little brother Mike. He's always invading her privacy, coming in without knocking, that kind of thing. Or maybe she's shown the list to Jay Kepler, her best friend.
Anyhoo, that's stage one: I have to get a good look at that list without Abby knowing, which means I need to get her out of her room - preferably out of her house. Planning that stage will give me a little something to scheme about, but not in an evil way, of course. Now that I'm on the case, everything that happens on Abby's 16th Birthday is going to happen for a reason.
Goodness, this going to be fun!
Being a Birthday Fairy has to be the best job in the world. Well...maybe the second best. The Big Guy in Red who lives at the North Pole has the most awesome job. Think about it: he gets to eat whatever he wants, he has a really cool uniform - I'd love to get my hands on those glam boots and that wide shiny belt - and he only works one day a year!
Birthday Fairies, on the other hand, are pretty much always on the job. We speak dozens of languages and get to travel all over the world. Oh boy, do I have the stories! I've worked my Birthday List Magic on kings and queens, presidents and senators, ministers and prime ministers. But my favorite birthdays are for people just like you.
Someday maybe I'll be assigned to your Birthday List. Won't that be fun?
Until then, keep making those wishes and don't forget to write them down. I think it's important to know what you want in life. Who knows? Maybe you won't need a Birthday Fairy.
You're smart, strong and beautiful. Start making your own wishes come true!
Who here thinks Celeste should be able to blog if she wants to? It's a free universe, right? If human beings can speak their minds, I can too.
But the comments are pouring in from my fellow magical beings. (You, dear human readers, can't see those comments because they're written in invisible type, which also bugs me.) They think I need to be a little more discrete. More mysterious.
For instance, they don't want you to know how much Birthday Fairies like me love pizza. They're afraid if you humans knew that we crave the cheesy tomatoey bready goodness of a perfect pie, you'd try to bribe us with it.
I think a simple warning will suffice:
Please do not leave a pizza under your pillow along with your Birthday Wish. it's messy and won't get you anything you want. Even from your parents.
Thank you. That is all.
