Max was impatient, was to say the lest, he was walking up and down pass the window looking out.
"When’s he coming?"
"When he gets here Love" Sandie said
The postman was late yet again and Max wanted him to come before he went.
"I will be going to school soon and i will have to wait all day to find out ....." Max lets out a little squeal as he watched the postman appear and walk up the drive. Max rushes to the door and pulls it open, before the postman could but the letters though the letter box, snatches them out of his hand and rushes off to open them. Sandie sighs as she apologies to the postman, shuts the door and follows Max in to the next room.
"What’s up Love" Sandie said
"Its my birthday and no ones got me a card"
"There, there Love" Sand said giving him a big hug "Maybe they come in the next post"
"But i will be at school" Max said pulling a face and stamping his foot.
"Don't pownt, and get into the car, I'm taking you to school, don't want to be late , do we?"
"Don't care, don't want to go" Max said, he was now in full sulk mode now.
"Your going and thats final. Anyway your friends at school will have a card or two for you" Sandie argued as she pulled him towards the car "and stop behaving like a baby"
Max could not keep his mind on school work, could not get a thing right. No one wished him a happy birthday, no cards, he spent the whole day sulking. When the school bell rang for the last time Max rush all the way home, slamming the front door as he went,
"Where’s the second post?" Max’s shouts from the living room. Sandie walk in and noticed that Max had dumped all his school stuff in the middle of the floor.
"Well .... where is it?"
Sandie sighed and picked his stuff up, hands it to him and said "Do you mind I have just clean in here, but it away and change please " Sandie pointed up the stairs.
A little while later Max stomps down the stairs, clean and changed
"Ok now .... now where’s the post?"
"There wasn't any. Sorry" Sandie said turning her back, "Now come on or we will be late for my book club!"
"What .... not tonight its my birthday" Max whined
"But you like coming?"
"Buts its my birthday. I don't want too"
Max started to sulk again
"Stop sulking Max” Sandie said as they drove off to her book club.
By the time they got to the meeting hall Max was as in a bigger sulk than he was earlier that morning and was not speaking to Sandie as she was telling him about her day at work.
As Max pushed opened the big doors to the sound of music and singing of
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAX"
With a big grin, Max floated from one person to another, all wishing him best wishes on his birthday
"Well what do you think Max?"
"Its great" giving Sandie a big hug "and look what the kids at school gave me" showing Sandie the watch on his arm and on the back it read
"To the best headmaster in the world"
