I’m Very Considerate That Way

We’re lying side by side, reading. A book for him, a screen for me.

Me: I want a cupcake.

Him: What? Where’d that come from?

Me: This post I’m reading. See?

I point at the word. CUPCAKE. It looks somehow magical, evocative, as if it were spelled out in actual cupcakes instead of plain old letters of the alphabet.

Me: I think cupcake is one of my ten favorite words.

Him: Hmm. You know, I don’t really like cupcakes.

Pause.

Me: That’s all right, I’ll have yours.

  1. What does he mean, “where did that come from”?? Doesn’t every woman want a cupcake all the time?

  2. The idea of anyone not liking cupcakes is beyond my comprehension. Cupcakes are a perfect expression of cakeness and certainly a favorite word of mine. In fact, after reading this, I may have to put “make cupcakes” on our to do list for today 🙂

  3. Sudden cravings only make me think of One Thing.

    Just sayin’

    Keep Mamacrow in your prayers today? She’s getting very/very/close.

  4. How can someone not like cupcakes? They’re cute little cakes. What’s not to like?

  5. I love the thought of cupcakes being spelled in cupcakes. Too funny 🙂

  6. My Twitter feed tells me babycrow has arrived safe and sound! Hurrah! I wish I could bake Mamacrow a batch of cupcakes. 🙂

  7. Wouldn’t that be nice?? And a good, hot meal to go with? Being far-away friends has it’s challenges …

  8. Nice how you two can work as a team like that. Isn’t that what marriage is all about? LOL!

  9. Funny! Thanks for the laugh today:)
