When you re-encounter an old crush, one of two things will happen. You'll either start singing Garth Brooks' "Unanswered Prayers," or your heart will get stomped on all over again. Mary has completely used John Dill to entertain little Olive and now all that remains are a few parting gifts and his tears. Inside each muffin, John has carefully baked a note hand-scribed with this message, "I will love you forever. Please call me. 202-555-CAKE."
Unfortunately, Mary and Olive are about to donate the muffins to the faithful hobo. Ultimately, the hobo will get a job at the bakery, thus fulfilling Olive's food service vision. Funny how things seem to work out.
