Magical Moment 302, "A Very Merry Unbirthday"

Eddie discovered that his new place of work has a wonderful tradition. Every employee gets their own birthday cake on their birthday! Talk about benefits. On his way home, he'll often call me and report that they had an ice cream cake for "so and so." I always reply with, "Did you steal me a piece?!" And his answer is always a regretful "no."

On one such day, Eddie went to the employee lounge to find an entire chocolate cake laid out in his honor. Odd since his birthday is in February. Eddie explained that today was not his birthday to the supervisor, who apologized profusely. Who knows how the mix up happened, but the important thing is, Eddie got a chocolate cake! And even more important, Eddie hates chocolate (don't even get me started on that one) so guess who gets to eat it all. Yours truly!

The cake is so delicious, I had to keep myself from inhaling it, with layers and layers of fudge and creamy goodness, surrounded with a milk chocolate shell. All I can say is, this is the best "Un-Birthday" cake I've ever had!

Oh it looks yummy! See now, if this had happened yesterday, I'd have to guess that his birthday was February 12 and they just got the day and month backwards but today being the third.. just doesn't work. So if you're really lucky, they'll err yet again. ;)

lol I love it! Jason always gets all kinds of goodies at work too. I always ask if he got me some and he always says no. :)

Just dropping by - I noticed your name on Hilary's site - it's my maiden name and not at all common.

Love the looks of that cake!

Hilary, here's hoping so! :)

Thanks Lori, hope you have a great weekend also.

Dawn, come on over!!! I got half left and I'll feel horrible if I eat it ALL! :)

Esther, I know, I always pester Eddie about it. I think eventually, nagging works. Lol. Just kidding.

Nancy, interesting! I've never known any other Grimes but my husband's family. He's from the Dallas area. Thanks for stopping by!
