Conversation between me and Eric this morning:
Me: What kind of cake do you want? (Side note: His 18th birthday is this coming Tuesday)
Eric: The cake is a lie.
Me: The cake is alive?
Eric: (cracking up) GAWD, mom, what are you, DEAF?
(both of us laughing)
Me: Portal! (wondering what this has to do with birthday cake)
Eric: Yes! The cake is a lie!
He then goes on to explain that it’s a video game and apparently they offer you cake and then instead of giving it to you, they kill you. Or set you on fire.
It took a while, but I finally found out he wants chocolate cake for his birthday. 🙂
