“Today is my birthday,” said Skinny Matilda. “Usually I eat half a birthday cake and tons of ice-cream all by myself.”
“Happy birthday!” exclaimed Stella, Skinny Matilda’s friend.
“Yes,” said her other friend, Harold. “Happy Birthday! Would you like a birthday cake?”
“Harold!” exclaimed Stella. “Remember my wedding? I don’t think Skinny Matilda wants cake.”
“But everyone should have cake on their birthday,” said Harold.
“I had more than enough cake at Stella’s wedding to last me a lifetime” said Skinny Matilda.
Skinny Matilda used to be fat. Stella wanted her to be her maid-of-honour but she couldn’t find a wedding dress that would fit her so she asked someone else to be her maid-of-honour instead. Skinny Matilda was very upset so at the ceremony she took a fork and gorged herself, eating almost the whole three-tier wedding cake. After that, she became so ill that she ended up in a coma for two months. While in the coma, she lost over 200 pounds.
“I know what you could have,” said Stella. “I have a low-fat cake. How does that sound?”
“Yes,” said Skinny Matilda. “I think that would be great.”
Stella sliced Skinny Matilda a small piece of the low-fat cake. She ate a little bit of it.
“You don’t want the rest?” asked Harold.
“No,” laughed Skinny Matilda. “That is enough cake for me. I don’t want to gorge myself on it.”
