Percy Turns 13
Buddy: ♬ Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday, dear what's your name.
Rusty: Stop! There is no "what's your name" here, dear or otherwise! Why are you singing that?
Buddy: Because Cyndi told me to get in here right away and lead the singing, but she forgot to tell me whose birthday it is.
Rusty: Percy's. It's Percy's birthday.
♬ Happy birthday, dear Percival.
Rusty: No, no, no! His name is not Percival. It's Perseverance. Everyone knows him as Percy, though.
Buddy: One more time!
♬ Happy birthday, dear Persevering Percy.
Happy birthday to you. Aa-ooooh, urp urp!
Rusty: *sigh* Why can't you ever sing without howling, Buddy?
Buddy: It's in the genes. And, Percy, our sweet friends over at ATCAD (Alasandra the cats and dogs) sent you this lovely card.
Percy: Hey, thank you guys. I appreciate the song. I think. And I love the card from ATCAD. I thought we don't post on the weekend any more, though.
Rusty: It's a special occasion. How many times do you get to turn 13?
Percy: I'm a cat. We have 9 lives. So, I'm guessing - nine?
