Having his cake...

Synchronicity is a recurring theme in my life. Yesterday I was flipping through an old favourite, EM Forster's A Room With A View - reminding myself what a cool story it is. Today, I came across a cool story about EM Forster himself.
Short sight was a problem for Mr Forster, the English author and essayist who had five novels published in his lifetime. On attending the wedding of his friend Lord Harewood, who also happened to be the Queen's cousin, Forster is said to have bowed gravely to the wedding cake, under the mistaken impression it was Her Royal Highness, Queen Mary.
Natural mistake really.
