In which Carla tells two stories that explain finding cupcakes in dark places: one is her story, one is Leonard Cohen's.

Referenced reading: The Flame, by Leonard Cohen: his full acceptance speech for the Prince of Asturias Award, on October 21, 2011, from which I quoted in this episode, begins on page 267.

My favorite happy socks. I own several sets, and I like to mix and match them at random.
