The After Birthday Party

cakeOh  glorious piece

Of Leftover

Chocolate Birthday cake,

Thank Zeus

My eyes

Were bigger than

My tummy

Last night

When I purchased you.

After the

Horrible day

I’ve had,

It was

A small miracle

To discover you

Waiting for me

In the fridge.

You have

No idea

How badly

I needed

The chocolate high

You just


This incredibly




Has me so depressed.

No way

For a guy

To feel

One day removed

From his Birthday.

Thank you

For the

Much needed


From wind chills,

Frozen pipes,

Subzero temperatures,

And other




All hail

The Chocolate Overlord!

Raise your

Glasses of milk

In a toast!

Long live

The After Birthday Party!

    Glad it was there for you ! Suppose that is why i baked a decadent chocolate cake this afternoon to help cope with the nasty freezing weather here & all those other annoyances to follow ? Yep just what the doctor ordered . 😉

    Let him eat chocolate cake. Happy day-after cold guy. Here, too. Double-digit minus wind chill. Ridiculous. And I can’t eat chocolate cake. 😦

  3. Thanks a lot! It’s after midnight here and now I’m craving chocolate cake. Which of course I have none of… I’ve had one of those days too. It’s bitter cold here in Wisconsin. Schools are closed for a second day tomorrow. Unfortunately my kids still have school because I homeschool. They are so deprived… no snow days for them. And here I am, no chocolate cake for me. 😦 Time to go snuggle under the covers with my two English Mastiffs and dream of chocolate cake. Wake me when spring arrives.

    Happy birthday Austin! You probably didn’t see my post about surgery on Monday. I’m catching up with blogs while waiting to take meds at 3:00! No fun at all and now I’m Jonesing for a piece of cake!

    yumm that cake sounds gorgeous.. It is a bit like pizza the next day – so wanted and so much more yummier… ( not no teasing about the weather this time)….. stay warm. Hope Gary is snuggled up in a cave somewhere.
