A Question of Responsibility

Gloria made cupcakes. They were delicious, and care-free.

"These cupcakes are tasty," I said. "I love cupcakes. They're cake without the responsibility."

Gloria laughed. "How do cakes have responsibility?"

"Come on, you don't know?" I asked. "How big a piece should I cut? Maybe that's too much cake? Maybe other people want cake. Where is the plate I need to eat this cake? Where is a fork? How do I get this plastic film back on the cake? Where do I put the cake?"

"I had no idea," she said.

"Cupcake," I said. "Unwrap. Eat. Dispose of wrapper. Freedom."
