The story goes like this:

I was playing Left 4 Dead with two friends of mine. During the level that takes place in a hospital, we found ourselves holding our own in a supply closet as the zombie hoard rushed at us. In the excitement, I realized that I had molotov cocktail in my inventory. I threw it into the hall at the zombies and got all proud of myself as they burned away. Next thing I know I hear my friends voice through the computer, AHHHHH!!!! Im on FIRE! Sure enough, his character ran into the hallway covered in flames. What are you doing?! he cried.

Then it dawned on me. Not only was his character on fire, but all of us were. I looked down at my health meter as it began to plummet. Problem was, the whole thing struck me as being really funny. I didnt even think for a second that the game would be clever enough to realize that the zombies werent the only flammable thing in the immediate area. Woops!

Not wanting to cause any hard feelings, I showed up with this when I went to his house the next day:



I am happy to report that I was forgiven right away.

...oh dear god, that's funny. Of course, it would take a lot to NOT forgive someone who brought me a cake, even if they set 2398472903847 of my characters on fire. ;-)

Must tell my son and daughter this story, my kids play L4D so often that my son has a habit of bringing Zombies into any topic we are discussing, specially around my work at the retirement home! KIDS!

Thanks for the comments everyone!  It's nice to see so many craftsters like Left 4 Dead.  I only started playing it because my boyfriend would disappear for hours playing it and I got curious.  It really is a ton of fun!

As for the cake, it's from a box sadly.  I didn't have much time to do anything too fancy, other than make it look pretty.  Next time I plan to do something interesting with the cake itself as well...red velvet?  Gooey center?

That cake has made my day.
It is done so professionally and sweetly you wouldnt except to see "Sorry I set you on fire" on it.
You are one amazing friend to do that for them.

Even though you set them on fire.
