For Jordan

Checklist for Jordan's Seventh Birthday

-Jules Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days

-A smoking jacket

-A Dictionary

-3 Plays by Ibsen


I know not to trust a wandering umbrella salesman. I know this because I've read The Umbrella Man. I also know not start a grudge with a white whale. And I know not to bargain with suspicious dwarves whose names rhyme with MumpleBiltklin.

If all goes according to plan, Jordan will come to the same logical conclusions. I just hope he doesn't change his name to 'Glass' and decide to start soaking in the tub for days on end. That would be a shame.
