Samantha Parkington was taking a walk with her Uncle Gard the day after her birthday party. She was fuming over Eddie Ryland's mean trick with the salty icecream.

"It was my tenth birthday. I was turning double digits! That only happens once and that makes it extremely important! And mean old Eddie Ryland had to go and ruin it! Oh, I'll never forgive him! I hate him!"

Uncle Gard chuckled. "Sam, you say that you hate Eddie Ryland so often that you're bound to end up marrying him."

"Marry Eddie Ryland! I will – never!"
