She said she was 39

Bitsy subscribed the Mark Twain School of Aging.

She also thought Jack Benny was right to be a perpetual “39,” and so she had been Forever 39.

When her evil stepsister threw a surprise birthday party for Bitsy, she was temporarily blindsided. Her sister had the waiters at the elegant restaurant roll out at large sheet cake emblazoned with a tiny forest fire of candles.

A combination of quick of mind and sleight of hand- while everyone was singing “Happy Birthday to you” she winked at the waiter and flashed a handful of dollars.

After the song – the handsome waiter leaned in and blew out the candles.

Voila!

And, so her age remained forever fluid…

Candle
