The Eyes Tasted Yucky

I thought part of the cake tasted stale...little did I wasn't an edible part of the dessert.


Man that piece of birthday cake looked good. I couldn’t wait to get back to my seat and eat part of Big Bird’s face. Yep, another child’s birthday party, with plenty of noise…party favors…yummy punch and this cake that I was about to enjoy. I put the first couple of pieces in my mouth…then I bit into the candy eyes of Big Bird…and yuck…they tasted stale. I figured those eyes had sat on the shelf for months.

When I told my ex-wife the story later, she started laughing hysterically. Turns out, I didn’t eat candy eyes at all. I ate two halves of a Styrofoam ball. What I had my eyes feasted on looked really good, but in the end it was Styrofoam. Sin is like that. It looks good at first, but ultimately leads to heartache. I know of many people who ended a relationship because the grass was greener on the other side of the fence. But, in the end it just led to heartache. Don’t be fooled…it’s just not worth it.

Fern...those eyes would have tasted better with some wine that you review. :-)
