Mom: I must admit I think the chocolate frosting on the chocolate cake is a little much...it's like that ice cream we got in West Salem that was dipped in chocolate. That tasted like somebody had put syrup in a tub of frosting.
Me: Oooooh, that's a good idea. [hysterical laughter]
Mom: You have had too much sugar.*
Me: [more laughter]
Mom: I'm going to warn Scott not to let you have sugar.
*Too much sugar = two pieces of cake and a bowl of ice cream. We celebrate birthdays properly here.
