Do it right: Choose your booze and back up
carefully into a blistered comfort zone, all
sunny, elegantly hip. Buttery leopard-print
booties. The real magic is brownies, a girl,
a lushly creepy mix of alternate universes
of food. There are times when you get to make
cakes where everything is moving to loud music.
Who gets me ready for the fancy things? I try
to be the main attraction, to look right. I am
just not a healthy eater. I ate doughnuts
and all these big, fun meals—guilty comfort.
I just want to have fun, still, for me alone.
