Happy Birthday, Honey!

This weekend was the occasion of Webster’s birthday. The Bug, inspired by countless hours of TV cooking shows and the constant activity aground The Kitchen Island, created this magnificent edifice that is sure to please Webster’s cardiologist. It was fantastic!

    Webster sez…
    As I was watching the Bug construct this remarkable edifice, I was struck by its ever-increasing height. By the time she got to the sixth layer, I was certain I would have to adjust the shelves in the refrigerator or put on a display of gluttony nonpareil and eat the top two or three layers. However, more experienced kitchen personnel – the lovely Wanda – intervened and magically compressed the entire project. It is now only slightly taller than a kitchen cabinet. But no matter! It won’t last long around here in any event!
