Speaking of cake

Had some birthday cake today.  It was good.  I like cake.

It reminded me about how I didn't understand that saying "You can't have your cake and eat it, too" for the LONGEST time.

It made no sense to me.

Isn't it, in fact, totally necessary to have your cake before you eat it?  Is it not a requirement to HAVE some cake before you put it in your mouth?  It's ridiculous! How can you eat cake you don't have?

I did eventually figure it out, and by figure it out, I mean I asked my mom. But she explained it and now we are all on the same page.

But, seriously, wouldn't it have made a lot more sense to just say, "You can't save your cake and eat it too!"

    "Once you've eaten your cake you no longer have it."

    "An eaten cake is GONE! GONE I TELL YOU!"

    "Where's my cake?"
