You put a person on a pedestal, they might fall down. You put a cupcake on it, and it just looks fantastic! Buying yourself a cute cake stand at the store can run you $50 and up—no, thanks! These were made for mere dollars, using candlesticks and plates from the thrift store. So you go on building the buffet of your dreams, and let your nibbles rise to your high expectations.
When you're walking home from work on a beautiful fall evening and you think, "A delicious cappuccino would make my life complete right now." Then you realize it's 5:00 and you're too old for that shit.
