Aspirin Cake

What I love about these old cookbooks is that they have very sweet "recipes" for friendships, marriages, and homes.  I will be posting them along with the "real" recipes for you to enjoy as well.  This one is more funny than sweet so I thought I'd start with this one.

Recipe from W.M.U Centennial Cookbook (1988)

Preheat oven
Turn down TV
Remove toys from counter tops
Measure 2 cups flour
Get baking powder
Remove Billy's hands from flour
Put flour, salt, and baking powder in sifter
Vacuum mixture off of kitchen floor (Billy spilled it)
Get an egg
Answer the phone
Separate egg, warm baby Adam's bottle
Help Mary figure out a new math problem (the old reliable way)
Grease pan; salesman at door
Take 1/4 inch of salt from greased pan and look for Billy
Put mess in garbage can
Put dishes in dishwasher
Call the bakery
Take an aspirin
