Order the Cake

“When you’re with someone that you love, that you care about, slow down,” he says. “Take it easy. Order the cake.””

— Randi Richardson, John Stamos shares the last piece of advice he got from Bob Saget — ‘Order the cake’ — and what it means


John Stamos says Bob Saget reminded him to always have time for loved ones in their last dinner together.
In an interview of Stamos’ interview on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist, the veteran actor said his late friend and former co-star taught him the lesson of “order the cake” when they went out to dinner with their wives.
“We’re always in a hurry to go somewhere next,” Stamos says. “It was the last dinner and you never think, ‘This is the last time I’m going to see my best friend.'”
Stamos continued by describing what Saget’s demeanor was that night.
“He was everything that I wanted Bob to be at that moment,” Stamos says. “He was calm. He listened. He didn’t talk about himself that much.”
Meanwhile, Stamos says he was watching the clock and planning to leave to make his next engagement.
“I was thinking, ‘We, we got to go,’” Stamos recalls. “And then he said, ‘Well… let’s order the cake.'”
Famously, davidji asks … Who’s in your front row? Essentially, who are your die-hard supporters, your cheerleaders, and your champions? When you stumble, who is rooting for you to get back up?
Those are the relationships you should be placing the most attention on.  But are you?  Next time when we are with one who is in your “front row” maybe we need to slow down and “order the cake”.
