Mom: Guess what Squeaks? Tomorrow is the 4th of July!!
Quill: Okay. ::Yawns, and tilts head:: So, that means the day after is the 5th of July!
Mom: Well sure, but no one is really that excited about the 5th.
Quill: I don't understand, is the 4th really that different than the 3rd or the 5th?
Mom: Yes! America celebrates its birthday on the 4th.
Quill: Does America have a party? Wait, America isn't coming to the house right?
Mom: No! Everyone kinda celebrates - separately.We're gonna watch movies all day and take a family nap in the afternoon. At night we're gonna watch fireworks.
Quill: That sounds good... right up to that last part. Didn't you say I needed to avoid fire?
Mom: Yes! Absolutely! Fireworks are different... well sorta. Actually, you may not like them too much, it's kinda loud. Finny used to spend the night in the closet.
Quill: Well, as long as I can scurry to my Kitten Lair behind your chair, and get extra kitten biscuits, I'm in! Will I get milk with my cake?
Mom: What cake?
Quill: You know the birthday cake...
Mom: Yeah, about the cake... there's not really any cake.
Quill: Humans are confusing.
