Happy, Happy Birthday Cranky__Crocus!!

Yes, it is our darling Kiwibird's natal day, so of course there must be cake!

But before we dig in, I'd like you to engage in a little observational exercise.  It's one of those things scientists often do without realizing we are doing it (and thus making us tiresome companions to others who'd rather just be getting on with eating the cake, thank you very much).  When one slices a kiwi fruit very thin, and then holds it up to the light, this is what one sees:

That bright, sunny core reminds me very much of our Birthday Girl. *g*

Many happy returns, Kiwi dear!

Listen, why don't you just buy an extra kiwi and slice it thinly and tell us all those interesting, scientific observations of yours(although that core is not, scientifically speaking, made of sunshine, but you're a scientist who read French, too, and thus you can get away with a multitude of sins).

While you do that, we'll pop open the champagne, cut the cake, and generally pig out.

I feel like I should start quoting Camus here . . . and when I'm done being existential, pass me the cake. *g*

Eeeeiiii this post made me smile! Look at that cake: it's beautiful! I love the way the little half-cut kiwifruit makes a heart with another, and how others look like stars. Very cute!

*Cackles.* Oh, and of course I observed the inside shapes of the kiwi fruit slices before seeing the rest of the post or partaking of the cake! Looks like I have to join you at the scientists' table being tiresome with observational exercises and not the quick-cake table with TRS!

*awwrs* This post made me smile to the core. (; (And thank you for that kind comment and cake along with the birthday wishes!)

I can even pretend this cake is healthy, what with the fruit. You're the best. ♥ Sorry it took me so long to respond!
