Fandango’s FOWC is ecstatic, the Word of the Day Challenge is guess, and Paula’s 3 Things Challenge words are rabbit, bathrobe, kaleidoscope

Jessica answered the doorbell in her bathrobe. She was excited to see Jenny. Jenny walked into the apartment carrying a birthday present. The two of them were going to spend the day celebrating.

Both sat on the couch. Jenny handed Jessica the gift and said, “You will never guess what this is, but I hope you like it.”

Jessica first read the funny card Jenny had made for her. She shook the package and felt it for hints. Jessica’s face lit up and she said, “I know what it is and I’m ecstatic!”

Mystified at how Jessica could possibly know, she said, “OK, what is it?”

It’s that anime we read about that features the rabbit with the kaleidoscope! I’ve been wanting to see it since we read about it.”

Shocked, Jenny said, “how could you possibly know that!? I didn’t tell anyone what I was getting for you.”

Easy,” Jessica said. “You left your phone browser open one day on the coffee table when you went to the kitchen, and the receipt showed up with a photo of it on there; when I saw the package, I knew what it was.”

Jessica and Jenny watched the video of the rabbit with the kaleidoscope and were delighted. Then they had brunch at the little cafe down the street with freshly baked muffins. Next they headed to the botanical gardens for a few hours, then each headed home to get ready for the evening. They met a few of their friends at the new night club that just opened, which happened to feature their favorite local band. The drank, laughed, and danced all night. It was a happy birthday for Jessica.
