Was that the birthday cake throne zone? Were there speeches? I am going to start dropping some serious hints. These things can’t be rustled up overnight.

Having studiously avoided any project that would make me the centre of a celebration for almost my entire sixty years, when informed of the plans I felt something bordering on utter panic. But I could also see that I’d deeply upset people for whom I cared by appearing curmudgeonly: they only wanted to make me happy.
A party-organiser was employed to set up what you refer to as the “throne zone” Outside caterers provided amazingly tasty food – we are still enjoying the left-overs.
Yes, there were speeches – but as they were all in Malayalam, I still have no idea what was said!
I premedicated myself with several hefty dose of gin, and pre-instructed Anu – my trusty houseboy – to ensure my glass was never empty.
Be warned, I understand my loyal staff and kind friends have been planning this party for some considerable time. Perhaps you should make any preferences known well in advance.

You are too kind…

Ooh, you had balloons – jelly too?
You are lucky to be cared about by so many people.

No jelly – but I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen it here.. Perhaps there might be problems getting it to set properly in this climate?
And yes, I am lucky… and very aware of how little I deserve such care..
