A very happy birthday to yeh...

In honor of my daughter Emmalie's sixteenth birthday tomorrow, an excerpt from one of her favorite books:

     "Anyway -- Harry," said the giant, turning his back on the Dursleys, "a very happy birthday to yeh.  Got summat fer yeh here -- I mighta sat on it at some point, but it'll taste all right."

     From an inside pocket of his black overcoat he pulled a slightly squashed box.  Harry opened it with trembling fingers.  Inside was a large, sticky chocolate cake with Happy Birthday Harry written on it in green icing.
