The Story Game

It's time to play The Story Game again. I just want you to have something entertaining to do if you swing by for a visit this weekend while I'm off boating. So play nice. Okay?

  9. But not just any cake. This cake was going to be made with three ounces of the aphrodesiac that she was saving for a special occasion. The cake came out perfect, but who to serve it to? "That's it," she thought. I'll take it over to the . . .
