A few times every year, I test myself to see if I have magically transformed into an adult.
Here are the steps:
- Bake a cake
- Acknowledge that eating too much cake will make me feel ill.
Did I eat enough cake (chocolate gingerbread bundt cake — without the frosting because I haven't been to the grocery store in over a month) last night to make me feel ill? Yes. Did I still feel sick when I got up this morning? Yes. Did I then eat more cake? Again, yes.
Clearly I am in no danger of becoming an adult this year either. But it's always good to check.
