A real conversation with Jesse

Jesse: You have Doll Parts on you ipod?
me:  Yes I do.
Jesse:  I didn't know you like Hole.
me:  I don't, I just like that one song.
Jesse: Oh, why's that?
me:  I like when she says "I want to be the girl with the most cake".
Jesse:  Huh?
me:  I wish I was the girl with the most cake!
Jesse:  I don't think that's what-
me:  I should get that printed on a t-shirt!
Jesse:  It's supposed to be-
me:  I wish I had some cake right now!
Jesse:  I think she means...
me:  *wanders off to see if we have all the ingredients for cake in the house*

Edited to clarify:  That is what the song really says but Jesse was trying to explain to me that it's a metaphor and not about real cake which I get but think is stupid because why would you want metaphorical cake when you could have real cake?

Three years ago today I took a pregnancy test.
Four years ago today Joseph was attracted to dogs.
Five years ago today it was a rough day.

That line has always spoken to me too. I want metaphorical AND real cake.

That song is on my iPod too, but I like Hole.

(I am physically incapable of leaving just one comment today. I have no idea what my problem is.)
