I’m Very Considerate That Way

November 8, 2009 @ 8:03 pm | Filed under:

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.

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

    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 🙂

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