Rehearsal (Lemon Soda Pop Cake)

“My last day on Earth —  I’ll wake up, say a prayer, have breakfast,  then bake a Lemon Soda Pop Cake — a little memento for all the guys left behind.   Later, I’ll  walk down to the big box and get the  best seat in the house!  I’ll be smiling when they flat line me — ‘cause next thing I know— I’ll be waking up in the galaxy of fresh baked sweetness.  Beautiful!” — J. Best
