Due to hazard, Calvin's birthday cake didn't have fifteen candles. Like most if not all abstractions, Calvin didn't have any concept Thursday was his birthday. He didn't make a wish, because he doesn't know what that is, and he didn't blow out the candle, because he doesn't know how. He didn't eat any cake that night because he was too tired, still recovering from that morning's seizure, and was well on his way to getting ill. But, we managed to get photos of our precious birthday boy, albeit without smiles, because no doubt he wasn't feeling good and he's oblivious to smiling for the camera anyhow.
