Flour Sandwich

It's party time at my place again.  The never-ending birthday celebration continues.  This time, we have out-of-town family coming in.  You know what that means - more cake!

My eight-year-old son asked if he could help make it.  I let him crack the eggs and add the oil and water.

"Can I eat the flour?" he asked.

"No, Bubba.  That would taste pretty awful."

"But I want to try it."

"No, Bubba."

I turned around to get a spoon.  Not even a second later, my son had flour all over the front of his shirt.

"Bubba," I said.  "You ate the flour, didn't you?"

He gave me one of his guilty looks.  "But it was so good, Mama! Can have some more?"

I shook my head.  "No, Bubba.  No more flour."

"What about in my lunch next week? Can you make me a flour sandwich?"

Yeah, right. (He sure is persistent, isn't he?)
