You have been described as having very little appetite for frivolity. Do you have any guilty pleasures? I run a lot every morning.
That sounds neither guilty nor pleasurable. But I do it so I can indulge in the guilty pleasure of eating birthday cake.
Every day? Most days, with ice cream. Early on, when my wife and I were dating, we went to the grocery store, and I told her that sometimes I just buy birthday cakes, and I eat them. And she said: “Really? I do, too.”
Even if it’s not somebody’s birthday? Yes. She went to the grocery store yesterday and picked up a white birthday cake.
