In which I get bamboozled.

October 28, 2016

I just wandered into the kitchen to find Michael playing Tetris with the fridge freezer.

“Wow,” I said, seriously impressed that he’d taken the time to divide the turkey mushroom casserole into individual meals and portion out the turkey pot pie filling.

“We have a lot of food,” he said, grunting with effort. “I’m trying to get it to all fit.”

“Oh,” I said, blindly walking into his trap. “Maybe we should take something out.”

“Good idea. How about this?” Michael grabbed a green Tupperware container, popping it open to reveal the very last Clarity in a Cup*. “Oh,” he said, utterly blithely. “Only one left.”

So yeah. That’s how Michael just tried to steal the last cupcake in the house.

I got the final word though. Just as I was exiting the kitchen and dashing out to the office, I said, “we’ll halve it at coffee break.”


*Clarity in a Cup will release in my newsletter, Cupcakes, Chocolate, and Other Magical Musings on November 1, 2016. If you aren’t a subscriber yet, you can sign up here.

      I just informed him that I blogged about his nefariousness. He completely denies my interpretation of the situation … while chuckling to himself.

    At least he was clever about it. Whenever I make anything and family/friends are over they just go in my fridge and take lol. My son is the cake/cookie/cupcake manipulator. He starts are by tellin me he loves me and I’m his best friend and thank you for making it for him as he taking it out the fridge. That’s his way of asking and then I can either let him have it or make him put it back
