Let Them Eat Cake (BBBC-2017-07)

This is post #7 in this year’s blogger challenge (scroll to the end of this post or look right to see the list of other participants). For this year’s challenge, I randomly came up with 28 writing prompts, one for each day of the month of February, the shortest yet LONGEST month of the year. Having to write a post daily sort of makes the month go by faster.

I’m sure some of the challenge participants have been scratching their heads about some of the more unusual prompts I chose. Today’s prompt is a good example. It’s “vegetable.”


I don’t know why I chose vegetable as a prompt. It’s just a word that came into my mind, so I added it to the list.

I always look forward to reading other bloggers’ posts to see how they interpreted each prompt, but I try not to read others’ posts before writing my own. You know, so I don’t steal any ideas, intentionally or not.

Some of these prompts are just as hard for me as they are for others. What kind of prompt is vegetable?

As it turns out, today’s prompt was easy for me. Yesterday was my birthday, you see. And, since I’m the health conscious type that I am, I celebrated my birthday with a vegetable, and some fruit, too. All baked into one delicious carrot cake.

I like cake. Many different kinds of cake. I especially like cakes with icing. Not that whipped cream-based crap some folks call icing. I like the real, sugary, calorie-filled icings. The ones that are so sweet they almost make your teeth hurt. Cream-cheese icing is good, too, and that’s what usually adorns carrot cake.

I’d told Hubby I wanted a carrot cake from Harris Teeter. HT was sold out. So my Hubby went a bit further afield and got a cake from Wegman’s instead.

It was delicious! Truly. A birthday isn’t a birthday without cake. It gave me something to write about here today, too.
