There is a cake in front of me and I thought: If I measure the angles of the candles with the froth, the shape of the sweet confection divided into sections, and then integrated it with a tapping of calculator keys and a scribble of symbols all too known, considering, for a moment the proper boundaries of x, y and z’s and then pressing the equal sign…

But before I could convert the units to centimeters a voice cries: that of a child, saying the cake is large, and could he please blow the candles so that he may have a slice?
