The cake saga

December 19, 2016
The Brazilian dance community celebrates dancers' birthdays like this: First, a dance party. Then, the birthday-girl (or boy) is called to the floor. A song is played. The boys line up to dance in turn with the girls (and vice versa) and everyone cuts in dashingly. There's much clapping. And much luscious cake. (At the last birthday party, this disheveled little owl was all hot and hungry and sat to recuperate. A piece of cake was sitting lusciously on a white paper serviette on the chair between her and the expert forro dancer on the other side. "Is that yours?" she asked him. "No," he said. "Oh," she said as she looked down at the cake-in-search-of-a-home. "Do you want some?" she asked. "No," he said, politely. So this little owl broke off a piece, popped it into her mouth and wiped the chocolate on her fingers onto the serviette. Seconds later the cake-owner arrived. She stared down at what was left of its deliciousness, then quietly removed it.) (Luscious cake is never left unattended at Brazilian dance-birthday parties.)
