Off topic but was a good game with the kids. We invented a language called "Lig-Patin", like Pig-Latin but with the first letters from each word transposed. The rules were that you had to take the first sound of each word and transpose it to the next word in the sentence. For instance, the sentence - Jane went to the store. - would have been spoken - Sane jent wo the tore. It taught the kids to be able to think about things as they did them in real time, speeding their reaction time. Another fun game was to copy what a person was saying and stay between 1 and three words behind them as they spoke. This was done to radio and television broadcasts and with each other. Again, it trains reaction time. The mispelled phrase - showdered pugar - reminded me of those games.
On topic: Another thing you can do with the lemon cake and pudding is to bake the cake according to box directions (add and extra tbs. of cooking oil to improve the texture), and then, mix the instant pudding with milk and pour over the cake, letting it saturate the crumb. Refrigerate and serve cold. This makes a very refreshing cake. You can also pour lemon jello into the cake before the jello has time to set. Again, refrigerate and serve cold. Both the liquid pudding and liquid jello cakes taste great.
