What would be the perfect cake for a little boy who loves football?
Well, a football-shaped cake, of course!
Actually, at a recent birthday "par-tay" for a six-year-old, there were two cakes.
One, shaped like a football, happened to be made from ice cream.
It accompanied the other cake, with candles on it, that he made wishes on and and blew out.
The six-year-old whose birthday was being celebrated opened all his gifts and seemed to be having a delightful time.
One of his gifts was a great big chocolate cookie with his name on it in colored frosting.
"Are you going to eat that cookie all by yourself or share it?" I asked the birthday boy.
He thought about my question for a couple of minutes and then, in a barely audible voice, said,
Good boy! Hope he has a wonderful new year of life!
