So…how are my revisions going, you might wonder?
Well. Um. Yeah.
Sometimes life takes the driver’s seat and I have to just sit back and hang on. And this week, I was consumed with one thing only: planning my son’s 6th birthday party.
The planning was going smoothly earlier this week, but then it all came to a screeching halt. My boy had asked for a Star Wars themed party and I went on a massive quest to search for a Star Wars cake. First I checked with our little local bakery, but they said, “Sorry, we don’t do licensed characters.” So I called every bakery and grocery store in two towns until I finally found a big, chain grocery store that had the perfect Darth Vadar sheet cake. Woohoo!
But no…the day before the party, the store called me to say they were wrong. They actually didn’t have a Darth Vadar cake, but would I like to replace it with Indiana Jones? Umm, no. I needed a Star Wars birthday cake like Barack needed an endorsement from Hillary…without it, I wasn’t going to get anywhere. But luckily for me, I got what I needed. (And according to CNN tonight, Barack got what he needed too!) I ended up calling back our little, local bakery and explained my desperate situation. She sighed and said, “Okay, honey. Bring in some figurines and I’ll see what I can do.”
And when I saw what she did, I realized: local and little…is always better.
(She actually made the light sabers from icing!)
