Birthday to Buffy
Would you please pass on the congratulations and best wishes
from the entire Council and from me personally to Buffy upon her
reaching her 23rd birthday? It is a tremendous event, so
rarely marked. I believe the last Slayer to see 23 was
over 200 years ago.
We have arranged for flowers and a small gift, but I fear they
may be late. We trust she will not consider that a
disaster. We do not want anything to mar today for
her. (Which is why I am asking you to convey the message
to her at an appropriate moment. I somehow think she would
not appreciate a call from me. The last time she answered
the phone when I was trying to reach you, she joined her sister
in 'mooing' at me. I hope that she is maturing as she
In any case, I am sure she will have a joyous day, appropriate
for this momentous record.
PS. Rupert, my congratulations to you as well. We
all know that Buffy would not be here today if it were not for
your efforts as her Watcher. You have done well, my
friend, and I hope that you will celebrate many further
birthdays with your Slayer.
