I may or may not have mentioned this before, but my boyfriend Charlie is a baker. This explains, among other things, my exponentially expanding backside and, relatedly, the lo-carb diet I’ve had to consign myself to recently. But that’s beside the point, really.
The point being that when I mentioned to him that I was doing this post series about The Lorax Movie, he – the man whose Lorax affection knows few, if any, appropriate bounds – decided he was going to take it upon himself to translate The Lorax into baked goods if it was the last thing he did.
And so he did. LIKE A BOSS.
