Scene 2, take 2
Ready. Go. Fast forward.
I had not planned it.
No dessert for me. No.
All I did was ask the always so helpful
mistress over at the Diglas cake vetrine,
to please plate a slice of that fabulous
Rote Ribiselschnitten mit Schneehaube,
they are tempting their guests with.
And tempting it is:
I mean, look at it!
Still, I resisted seduction.
Took my picture as planned.
Went back to my table.
Sat down. Easy.
Caring mother that I am,
I had to ask my son,
if by any chance he wanted
(he already had eaten Apricot Dumplings).
No Key Lime pie, he asked?
I am so sorry, sweetie,
the Ribiselschnitte mit Schneehaube
is the closest you can get to that Key Lime pie
filling, here in Vienna,
so far from any Key lime tree.
Lo and behold, he wanted a slice!
But only if I was going
to help him eat it
(understandably, what with the apricot dumplings!).
Oh, well, such is the way
of all things sweet:
If you resist temptation long enough,
they will force it on you.
In the name of motherly love,
you resign yourself
and pick up the fork.
