    This made me laugh out loud, Jeannie! I know chefs are notoriously temperamental (I have several really good friends who are chefs) but there was something particularly hilarious about a pastry chef being full of himself. :)

    This is one of the best senryu I have ever read. The s and f sounds here are wonderful and add to the sense of fullness. I laughed out loud several times yesterday while driving around town and saying it aloud.

    Ah, yes, chefs, been there, while running a restaurant. They make or break don't they? :-)
    More pastry:
    steak & mushroom pie
    my new-found uncle insists
    I call him brother
