you could give it to someone else, who would enjoy it.<br />
its always nice to see someone you love smile and know its because youre totally awesome :P
Being able to give it to peasants when they run out of bread and start reinventing the guillotine.
The unfortunately foreign woman probably never said that.
Marie Antoinette, who allegedly said that thing about giving the starving people of Paris cake, was a popular scapegoat because she was a foreigner, she wasn't a saint, but was mainly a pawn, married very young to a guy she didn't know.
Sucked to be her.
just look after it. What's the point of eating it if you have it? LOL
It's one of those B.S. social norms. ALWAYS bring a treat/prize/gift that the "honored" person would appreciate. The event is for them; screw everyone else. ...And never feel fear about that, as there will always be the majority backing you, even if they just learn that you are doing the correct thing.
To share with others.
Eventually you're going to have a party and the anticipation is half the fun.
