Memorial Cake

I brought in a spiced apple cake yesterday but I arrived somewhat late and it wasn’t completely consumed.  At the end of work today there was a single piece left at 6 PM and my boss’s boss commented that it was sad that there was one piece left alone.  I replied “I don’t consider it to be a piece, so much as a monument to the pieces who went before it”.  He nodded in agreement and we bowed our heads a bit.  With that, I downed the memorial piece.  I wish all monuments tasted this good.
