How It Might Have Happened

"Hello? Yes, I'd like to order a cake that looks like my husband's Audi. That's right, an Audi. And could you make it a nice coppery brown? Thanks!"


[Later that day]






Alisha E., don't tell me that's not really what happened, because I choose to believe it is. So there.
