I Take The Cake

This was an accident but no less humiliating. We were hosting a Graduation party. Tables and chairs had been set up in the garage and some long tables had been set up for all the food. Extension cords snaked around to far off outlets. I was sitting at a table with 3 women who were friends of my wife. There were about 20-25 people in the garage. My wife entered the garage thru the laundry room door carrying a large sheet cake. It was a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. She was taking it to one of the food tables. As she approached me, her foot caught on a power cord and she tripped. My wife took 2 big steps then smashed the cake right in my face!! The cardboard tray folded around my head in a loving embrace. I managed to hold her so she didn't fall to the floor. People all around me were laughing and staring! My wife stared at me in stunned disbelief then she too laughed! I was totally humiliated but I couldn't help but think it was funny too! I looked around but I couldn't see anything thru the thick mass of cake and gooey frosting that covered me from the neck up. I tried to speak but only a garbled mumble came out. I sat there for a few minutes so people could take pictures of me then I stumbled into the house to shower. It took me 45 minutes to get clean! My wife went to get another cake.
