Last week I threw myself a birthday party. Yeah, I still do that kind of thing. I decided to make some cupcakes for the occasion and definitely wanted to blow out 32 candles, so I went ahead and purchased a box of those too. There were several kinds to choose from, so naturally I selected the ones labeled as “Magic”…not really considering what magic might mean, but in my opinion, magic is always a good thing. After the lighting ceremony, I went to blow out the candles and…low and behold, the candles all re-lit themselves. Nice. I bought myself “magic” trick candles…I guess there’s some magic in that.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Eno. Yes, the rumors are true. I accidentally bought us trick birthday candles for our cupcakes last night. To my credit, the box said “magic” and I’m a sucker for things that say “magic.”
