Seven-year-old Evan’s face glowed with happiness. This was the best birthday party ever!

All his friends were there, having the time of their lives. Mom and Dad were enjoying the party as well, pounding down Margaritas with the other grownups while the kids played party games and wolfed custom-made ice cream sundaes.

Yes, ice cream sundaes. This place not only provided the ice cream, hot fudge, caramel and butterscotch sauces, maraschino cherries, whipped cream, and chopped nuts; there was row after row of multicolored sprinkles to choose from.

Screw Chucky Cheese, thought Evan. Jimmy Buffett’s Jimmy Buffet was waaaay better.

[The theme of Weekly Challenge #109 at the 100 Word Story Podcast is, of course, Jimmy Buffet (sic).]
