"I was born in the desert."
My birthday is in the summer.
"I have to get sandals."
Because my birthday is coming and I will need the correct footwear for the sand.
"On my next birthday I'm gonna be 14."
I'm going to be four.
"My birthday is next week."
Because I'm so excited for my birthday.
"I don't want any chocolate."
I would like some chocolate, please. Today. Not on my birthday.
"My dad has the day off."
He's working late, so he's not picking me up. I hope he doesn't miss my birthday.
"I can't drive a Jeep because I don't have a license."
Having a license is the same as being able to reach the pedals. Which will happen when I turn 4, next week, in the dessert.
