I brought a chocolate sheet cake to work the other day. I’d asked for an “outer space” theme for the decoration, and the cake decorator at my favorite bakery didn’t disappoint. There was a quarter moon, and a sky full of stars, and even the planet Earth in blue and green frosting, showing the Western Hemisphere side of things.
The reason for the celebration was to mark the ten-year anniversary of my joining the staff of the Sheboygan District Attorney’s office as a state prosecutor.
The “outer space” theme was to mark the fact that in those ten years, I’ve driven more than 130,000 miles back and forth from home to office. If you look that up, you’ll find it’s more than half the distance from the earth to the moon.
Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “going the distance”!
