Of all the adjectives to best describe the extravagance of this long weekend, ‘extra’ has to be up there with the best of them.
‘Extra’, of course, is best known as an adverb (extra cake please!), but to those of us too old to be down with the cool-kid-lingo…it also means excessive, but in a good way!
🍰 Like cake that’s been layered and decorated in a glass… just because!
