I Just Don’t Want to Stop

June 6, 2011

I hold the knife in my hand.

Take it easy.

Carefully, I push the knife forward and down.

Exercise some self-control.

At first there is some resistance, and then the knife cuts through easily.

Just a little cut.

One more cut, and then I slowly lift the piece out, still a bit cool from the refrigeration.

It’s a lot bigger than I planned.

I sink a fork into the corner and tear away a bite-sized piece.

You know you don’t have to do this.

Hesitantly, I bring it to my mouth and close my lips around a mouthful so sweet it makes my salivary glands swell. 

I won’t eat the whole thing.

Before I can even make sense of it, my plate is empty.

    […] I figured I wouldn’t leave you in the dark about what I was eating the other day.  I had the pleasure of creating a birthday cake for a friend, and while my cake […]
