He's doing it again. He's making himself a big pancake in the shape of HER face. He's in his robe and boxer shorts, hair rumpled, pouring lumpy Bisquick batter onto the skillet, and he's just gotten to pouring her ears. The batter must be thin, because the pancake earlobes are running toward the pancake chin. It looks like a National Geographic pancake.

He doesn't think you realize what he's doing. If you hovered longer, he'd say, "This pancake is Mickey Mouse!" And you wonder: Would you tell him you know he's lying, because Mickey's ears are atop of his head?
