To say that Suzie was prepared for Reagan’s party would be a bit of an understatement. She had her present (and a specially drawn birthday picture) sitting by the front door for two days before the party.
She wanted to make sure she did not forget the present.
(and actually for a few hours on Friday, the gift was on the front porch because Suzie had moved the present out there…seems she thought if it was on the front porch there was even less chance of it being forgotten…)
The present was not forgotten, not will Suzie ever forget being invited to the party.
