This is the first of a new advice column I thought up just this second. It is called, as you have surmised, Ask a Trout. In this column I will answer questions that have been directed to me through the wonders of Google. I figure if people come here looking for answers, I should dish them up - even if it is long after they have wandered off muttering to themselves.
Today's quesion is "What to get for someone's birthday who doesn't like cake?"
At first I thought this was an unfair question as it's so obvious. And yet, when things are obvious to one person and perplexing to another, it is often the case that the unperplexed person has a natural gift.
I have such a gift.
What to get for someone's birthday who doesn't like cake?* Well, since you're the one who's going to be eating it and sending them a video, it doesn't matter what the birthday person likes or doesn't like. The answer for today is: cake.
Do stay tuned for more Asking of Trouts, won't you? And if you can get here by cleverly asking Google a question, more power to you.
*Who doesn't like cake? That's just wrong.
