Last week we celebrated Moose’s 3rd birthday. We threw a Super Mario themed party, dressed his sister as a 1up and I made delicious Super Mario cakes. One was a power up mushroom and the other was a star. (Given that my art skills are only surpassed by my math skills, I was reasonably pleased with the fact that the cakes even remotely resembled a star and a mushroom.)
The power up cake didn’t seem to do much. No one grew to be 10 feet tall. The effects of the invincibility cake are yet to be determined. So far no one who attended the party has been killed byÂ anthropomorphic bulletsÂ or turtles, but that could simply be that all of my family and friends have mad skillz (or cheat codes.) If everyone who ate it lives forever, then it worked. For now, I’ll just avoid infinitely deep canyons and hope to find some money floating in the sky… and, if all else fails, I still have that 1up around here (if I follow the smell of sour milk and poop, I can find her pretty easily).
So… I could give you some invincibility cake and some 1ups… but would you want to live forever? Would you like to be invincible? If you could be invincible for 2 minutes, what would you do?
BTW, It’s yellow cake with butter cream frosting, how big of a slice would you like? And is this a Super Mario LARP? I’m worried it might be. I don’t want to be a LARPer… my mom’s basement is too cold to live in!
