Once upon a weekday in very early April a girl made cupcakes for a boy. In the kitchen at No. 10 the chessboard floors were dotted with unruly dozens of colored sprinkles. You see, it was not only a workday, a school day and a just-back-in-town day, but a birthday. And just as no birthday should be without sweets, no sweetheart should leave her boy without them. "Now there's a proper celebration!" she cried, "a candle, a cupcake, and cotton candy." The End.
