The Cake Eater
Stella: Aha! What a revelation you must be having learning that I was right all along. Making a cake is a TON of work. Who knew it took hours upon hours to make/frost/decorate one simple little cake and then even longer to clean it all up? So what's wrong? You didn't like standing on your feet all day working? I do feel bad that Loki tried to bribe me with truffles & a magazine and I didn't even help her that much. But she said she wanted the cake to look like she made it herself so I didn't want to interfere. (Except when I heard Nana trying to tell her how to make fondant all wrong!) So I wrapped up the candy and put it under the tree for Bella from Aunt Loki. I did enjoy the magazine and found a gorgeous ad of this farmer man named Joshua modeling jeans and tore it off to tack up on my wall. Yes, that's how desperate I have become. Sometimes at night I will talk to him like he's real.
Loki: Oh my gosh! You are insane. Please dont start decorating your room like a young teenage girl in love with the Hansons. You can get a little obsessed. Fun fact: Stella decorated her room with a collage of boys when she was in high school...even the ceiling. I was just trying to cheer you up as I knew coming over there on Wednesday that Verucka(? i dont know how to spell that name) was visiting that day and I was trying to make her go away. I said that I wanted to decorate the cake...and I was hoping some of your skills rubbed off on me and Big T would be impressed. I did not say I wished the cake to look like a 3rd grader did it. Big T was mighty pleased and he said it was a lot better than he could do (how's that for a compliment)...and that he will even eat a piece since I made it. It better be as good as yours. Im sorry I dont know of any hot young single men for you to salivate over. Maybe you should try a dating website... I mean you said you were desperate. Or you could just wait until your 10 year reunion and maybe the nerd in high school turned out to be the best looking older man?! Isn't that what mom always said? That the dorks were always better looking after 10 years and that the popular good looking ones always end up like losers? Perhaps there is a feller who always had a crush on you...but was too chicken to speak to you back then, Now he has a brilliant job and makes tons of money and he is going to ride in a limo to the reunion and sweep you off your feet! Im saying reunion because I just got invited to mine. Im old. It isnt until July..I told Big T that if I were pregnant we wouldnt have to go. Hows that for bribery.
Stella: Actually I was just joking about the picture. I don't think hanging random men on my wall would be a good thing for Bella to see. I have a fever today. So does my little one. But just so you know, I made a real honest effort to come up with something to write about.
