My dearest darling Nick:
Where on earth did you find a real partridge in a pear tree?
Thank you a hundred times!
All my love forever,
Sandy

They’re adorable. Thanks again!

Dear Nick:
Aren’t you the extravagant one.
I don’t deserve such generosity, three French hens!
Love,
Sandy

Dear Nick:
Today I got the four calling birds.
Now really, they’re beautiful, but isn’t that a bit too romantic?
Affectionately,
Sandy

Dearest Nick:
What a surprise. Today the UPS delivered five golden rings, one for every finger. Just in time, as those birds squawking were starting to get on my nerves, and I was beginning to wonder about you!
Love,
Sandy

Dear Nick:
When I opened the door today there were six geese laying on my front steps. So you’re back to the birds again? These geese are huge. Where will I ever keep them? The neighbors are complaining. Please stop.
Cordially,
Sandy

Nick:
What’s with you and freaking birds?? Seven swans a swimming.
What kind of joke is this? There’s bird poop everywhere. I can’t sleep at night and I’m a nervous wreck. It’s not funny.
So stop!
Sandy

O.K. Buster:
What the hell am I going to do with 8 maids a milking? It’s not enough with all those birds – they had to bring their cows! There’s manure everywhere and I can’t move in my own house. Just lay off, smartass.

Hey Bonehead:
What are you…some kind of sadist? Now there’s nine pipers playing – and I mean playing! They haven’t stopped chasing those maids since they got here. The cows are upset and they’re stepping all over those screeching birds. What am I going to do? The neighbors want me evicted. What were you thinking?!

You rotten jerk:
Now there’s ten ladies dancing. I don’t know why I say “ladies.” They’ve been fooling around with those pipers all night long. Now the cows can’t sleep and they’ve got diarrhea. The Commissioner of Buildings has subpoenaed me to give cause why the building shouldn’t be condemned. I’m calling the police on you.

Listen you “#$%&*^#”
Great – now there’s eleven lords a leaping on those maid and ladies. All twenty-three of the birds have been trampled to death in the orgy. The pipers have even started getting the cows into the action. I hope you’re satisfied, you rotten vicious swine!!!
Your sworn enemy
