The Fruitcake

By Brenda B. Covert
1     Buddy Breezer slipped into the kitchen. His wife had gone shopping. Left on the counter was a heavy, sticky, colorful fruitcake.
 
2     "Ah, now's my chance," he said to himself. He tiptoed over to the cake. He was behaving as if the dessert might hear him and run away!
 
3     He stood there, looking down at the loaf his wife had made. Every year it was the same. He dreaded fruitcake day. How could Bonnie make this stuff? How could Bonnie eat this stuff? How could she not know how he felt about this stuff?
 
4     How many different fruits had she added to this cake? Buddy saw candied cherries, candied pineapple, dark raisins, light raisins, and something that was either chopped dates or figs. It looked like some chopped walnuts were in there too. It looked like there was more fruit than cake!
