Had so much fun with your definition remistram! All kinds of related verboticisms popped into my mind, some of which I couldn't resist putting in my sentence as I sat here laughing out loud. Everyone's great creations made me laugh more. Fun definition!

I've made it a point to let my friends know that on my birthday cake, I expect one candle for every year of my age. (Next is the big three-oh.) You can't stop getting older, so you might as well enjoy the fire hazard that your birthday cake is slowly becoming.
