Birthdays ..Anniversaries ...Celebrations!


I have this fantasy about my upcoming Birthday the end of April.

I want to lean over a cake with 70 lighted candles and try to blow them all out with one breath.

The fantasy part is doing it with just one lungful of air.

Depending on where such a lighted cake was placed, we would have to turn off smoke alarms.

And crank up the air conditioning.

And have more than one person lighting the candles.

One to start in the middle while another works in from the edges.

With long lighted tapers.

And invite my nephew, a veteran fireman up in Maryland, to be there in full gear - just in case.

He tells me he has answered such calls before.

No doubt it would require a pretty large cake to hold that many candles.

Lots of leftovers?

Maybe there is a local restaurant that does this sort of thing?

Any suggestions?

Maybe longer than usual candles. I am sure this can be managed.

Hmmm, maybe we can work on Coco's if you're game?

to make it suitably dramatic, the cake area to candle ratio should be fairly low (i.e. small cake, lots of candles) like what's illustrated in the Bloom County frame in your post.

Think of all the photo ops that would present for all of us photo geeks!

of course there would have to be a much larger cake for all of us to share at your party.
