I gave you a cake plate - surely one of your most cherished possessions all these years.

During the train trip to your wedding, I sat with a college chum of ours - we'll call him "George Rose" - wondering what I should write on the note accompanying the gift. With his uncanny feel for le mot juste, George Rose solved the problem: "I hope you enjoy this cake plate."


This almost makes me want the crockery--but not quite. Maybe in ten more years.
