Lately, I have noticed a lot of news regarding all aspects of the body. According to one report I read, this is a multibillion dollar-a-year business. I never knew my body was worth so much money. Im tempted to sell it, or at least rent it out on a part-time basis.
I did not know how big of a deal this was until one night this past week I had a little trouble sleeping.
One reason I have trouble falling asleep is my deep fear of falling. Actually, its not the fall that worries me so much as that sudden stop. For some inexplicable reason I always stop three inches past the floor.
I would not worry so much about falling asleep if I knew I was going to fall on my pillow instead of the floor. However, I cant count on anything these days. Not even my fingers.
I once woke up in the middle of the night engaged in a vicious life or death pillow fight. Unfortunately, the pillow won and I cannot find anyone to take my case.
I did find one lawyer but he was three-sheets-to-the-wind and my case was no breeze.

Recently, while sitting in my chair drinking the last of my breakfast coffee, a thought staggered into my mind. I must confess most thoughts are quite lonely once they enter my mind, but this one had a nagging element to it.

This time was different. Don't ask me how it was different, or how I knew it was different, it just was. Of course, looking back I could have been wrong.
The thought: why not surprise my wife by baking her a cake?
I know what you're thinking. I thought the same thing when this suggested itself to me. But, the more I thought about it, the more delightfully delicious it sounded. How can anything go wrong if I am doing it for my wife?
The only question I needed to answer was what kind of cake should I bake.
After a long period of ruminating, I settled on a lemon sponge cake with peanut butter icing. This was going to be the best surprise my wife has ever . . .
