Well, the coffee cake was a hit, especially with the toddlers, and it was worth nearly burning my thighs as I rode the number 2 train with the hot-from-the-oven pan on my lap. I told the ladies I'd brought the cake to make friends, since it was a little early to walk in with a six-pack, to which they replied, in unison, "We're stay-at-home moms! It's NEVER too early!"
Well, then. Back from Real Housewives: Park Slope, I finally got a call from K., now in Kuwait, where (no surprise) it's very hot. ETA for Brooklyn: sometime Sunday, probably late afternoon or evening. Wheeeee!
