Birthday Cake

But back to my mom's birthday cake for a moment. When she was telling me about it, she said, "It was such an interesting color."

I thought: Huh-oh. There's that word again: "Interesting..."

...I should have insisted that Paul make a chocolate cake with chocolate icing.

But I hadn't wanted to be too bossy.

-What color was it?

-It was a yellow cake. The frosting was orange. With a pink border.
I thought: Whoa!

Then today I happened to drive by this house on 39th Avenue. I squealed to a stop. There was something familiar about it. Then it came to me. This is what the cake must have looked like! Not bad at all.
