Birthday Cake Promise

2 Nov


Today is the birthday of someone special.

She’s the quirkiest girl I know. Unforgivingly pessimistic and childish. She doesn’t like boys yet. She used to be obcessed with Hello-Kitty. She talks funny sometimes, says “um” a lot…pronounces words the wrong way sometimes like “palm-o-live” and “lotto.” She answers the phone by saying “allu?” She has neon pink pants and a bright baby blue winter jacket that sometimes get worn at the same time. I’ve watched her trip over her own boots on several occasions. She has pretty hair.

She’s also the kindest person I know. The hardest working. The most generous. The best friend a person could ask for. My best friend.


We have known each other for way too long. She has seen way too much. She knows me way too well. I’m surprisingly ok with this: She’s like family!

So as I was saying, today is her birthday. Unfortunately she has to live too far away for me to be there for her special day. I feel bad. I feel bad that I didn’t mail her present yet, or send her cookies by mail like last year.

That’s why for now, I’m giving her a birthday promise. The promise that when I see her next and we actually get to celebrate her birthday for realsies….I’m going to bake her something special. I’m going to bake her something that makes her know how crazy awesome she is. I’m going to step out of my comfort zone for her, and bake her a cake!

Lynn, Happy Birthday! I’m gonna bake you THIS cake.
