You have been craving a lemon cake for so long. Thick buttercream icing covering the top.
Man! You just know life will be better with a bit of lemon cake in your life.
Everyone likes cake!
You make that cake and it’s a bloody good one! You have spent time and energy putting it together and you are super happy when before you stands the beautiful lemon cake with buttercream icing that you have been craving for so long. Good on you for finally getting it together.
But then someone turns up with their cake…
They wanted cake too.
It’s a vanilla cake with passion fruit icing, two tiers. The cake is decorated better, is bigger and you know they always make good cake.
You want that cake!
Why did they get the bigger cake? They are far better at making cake than you are. Of course it is always going to be better.
How good would the vanilla with passion fruit combo be!
You want what they’re having.
Five minutes earlier you were all just like, fuck yeah I got cake!! This cake is going to rock!!
Now your cake sounds just not as exciting as it once did. You want the bigger cake, the fancier cake.
You just know their cake would be amazing.
But hold on! You haven’t tried their cake. What makes you think it is going to be better than your cake.
You still have your cake…
The lemon cake that was exactly what you wanted. That you wanted for so bloody long!
The lemon cake that tastes delicious and perfect.
You both got cake.
Just different cakes.
Just eat your freaking cake!! It is what you wanted all along!
The cake always appears tastier on the other side doesn’t it?
