It’s Pancake Day!

So who hasn’t had their pancakes today? Although I think my mother used to give us pancakes for breakfast every year on this day, I don’t think she ever put coins inside the pancakes for us to find.

I didn’t know anything about the history of Pancake Day until I looked it up on Wikipedia five minutes ago.

    I used to get coins in my pancakes. It helped my immune system to grow into its own sentient lifeform and eventually took over this body.
