From the Mouths of Babes

At school on Monday, Quin's 7th grade class did some general holiday merry-making that included infusions of store-bought cake and other treats. As is his wont, Quin was detailing for me the crap treats he consumed, and when he mentioned cake, I made the appropriate "yum yum" noises.

And here he surprised me. "Eh -- it wasn't really that good." Now, for Quin to not wholeheartedly embrace cake of any stripe (even grocery-store cake) is a completely unknown phenomenon, so I delved at bit. What was wrong with the cake? "It was like -- it was like a bad imitation of chocolate."

That's mah boy!


May your holidays be merry, your new year bright, and all of your chocolate be at least 63% bittersweet.

Suffice it to say that if you do "any" amount of baking over time our "chillin" become way more discriminating and yep they become a part of the tribe. Way to Go. Read up on some of your posts. Love your stories. Thanks for sharing. Your guy inhabitants sound like amazing young men in the making. Forward March!
