my roommate is making plans for my birthday dinner. she asked me what i thought about menu choices. when we got to the dessert portion of the menu, we had a choice between one or two desserts.
practically speaking, i answered, “well, we can probably do with just one dessert. i mean, we’re going to have cake too, so we probably don’t need to get two desserts…not that i’m assuming that i’m going to have a cake at my birthday dinner or anything, but you know, most people do, and so if i were to have a birthday cake, one might imagine that two desserts is not really necessary…but hey, you know, whatever.”
