Eating Cake Alone

Life: I can have it all. But it will probably kill me.


Mine is obviously the elaborate castle. The bottom is GARBAGE.

My castle is clearly better. Look at the pathetic attempt beneath my clearly superior piece. Stop crying, I told them. WHAT DO THEY KNOW ABOUT SACRIFICE? I kneeled on acorns until my knees bleed. I bent little fingers, pulled them off chalk one by one, to secure the last green piece. I’M STRONGER. AND I WANT IT MORE. I spent an hour creating important elaborate details- throwing curious and excited toddlers out of my way. Screaming at them to do their own castles. They wanted to add a giraffe on the top of the castle for Gods sakes. A GIRAFFE. There are no giraffes here. I told them they were all dead to me. Go collect leaves or something if you can’t cut it in this chalk game. Not everyone is a winner. Maybe that will teach them to compete with me.
