Conversation with a chocolate cake (drawings by Aude Picault)

Conversation avec un gâteau au chocolat, 2009 drawings by Aude Picault

What do you do when your firemen parents run off to put out a fire on your birthday and leave you all alone?
It’s simple.
There are two solutions: either you become a world specialist on boredom or you look around, hoping to meet someone extraordinary.
Like a talking chocolate cake.
But watch out: if you start a conversation with your birthday cake, it might be hard to eat it.
“I took the knife and pointed it at the black crust. “What are you doing?” said a voice. I turned toward the plant in the living room.”
