Mommy & Daddy enthusiastically rushes to select the design for Mishti's first birthday cake. After locking horns over 25 odd designs, only few were short-listed. Barbie & princess themes were readily turned down to avoid gender stereotype. Finally after much discussion 'Angry bird' was finalized. Their reasons for this choice(If you think these reasons are weird then you are almost right !!!):
Mishti giggles when she listens to those shrieks & screams of 'Angry Birds' while anybody plays this game.
With a pair of dark & arched eyebrows (inherited from her dad !!!) and rolling eyes Mishti resembles 'Angry Birds' sometimes.
The cake with this theme looked quite colourful & bright.
Bit uncommon choice for a one year old's birthday...but then does anything till now proves Mishti's parents' choices as regular and standard ones!!!
Once the theme has been finalized, the money-talk starts between Daddy & the lady who owns the bakery, over the phone. Daddy found her a snob and very unprofessional who refused to deliver the cake at the venue (only 3-4 km away) & insisted on extra payment for that service. She was kind of throwing her weight around.....(but with her ability to bake cakes, throwing weight comes to her naturally...isn't it!!!). They leave the shop without confirming the order.
Anyway, bad mood was contagious that day. Daddy passes it on to Mommy to redirect his anger for that baker's lady. Mommy reverts with same spirit . Soon, everybody witnesses two live 'Angry Birds' fighting with each other...obviously in this case the weapons were sarcastic comments & hard words.
So, now you see, how effective these 'themes' are. Not only kids even adults get influenced by them so easily!!!

(P.S. Next Day, Daddy coyly ordered the same cake over the phone after talking to the real owner of the bakery who is mother of that unprofessional lady . She was very courteous and professional.)
