Smile When You Say That

On Saturday I was making a cake in preparation for the High Holy Day of American culture and it was not going well. First, despite my prodigious lubrication thereof, the cake stuck to the pan. Second, despite my application of a primer layer, the surface of the cake kept tearing away when I tried to apply the frosting. To say that I was frustrated would be an understatement. (I must confess that there was even a bout of child-like throwing of implements.)

I pronounced, “This is a total disaster!” My eldest wandered into the kitchen and said, “Yeah, but it’s your total disaster.”
