What’s that sound?

So, we’re finishing up dinner last night.  A asked to be excused.  Minutes later, we hear a muffled rustling sound, somewhat like a gentle rain or wind-blown leaves …

“A?  Where are you?”

No response.

“Honey, where, are you?  Are you OK?”

A muffled whimper comes from the pantry.  Now, I’ve already become very adept at interpreting the difference between the “I’m hurt” whimper and the “I’m surprised/embarrassed/caught-doing-something-I shouldn’t-be-doing” whimper

This would be the latter.

wear her Christmas “party dress” all day

You see, A has discovered the nutrient-deficient food shelf in that pantry, AKA the baking shelf.  Seems she is partial to the dried cotton candy cupcake toppings.

And let me tell you.  You’ve never had cupcakes until they’re covered in cerulean and fuchsia hued globs of dried sucrose

At least this was a teachable moment:

  1. If you make a mess, you’ll probably have to clean it up
  2. Blue ear protectors are the must have accessory for summer
  3. If you’re trying to sneak a snack, go for the squeeze-tube of icing.  It’s quieter.

    Look at you taking pictures of spilled cupcake sprinkles on the floor! You’re a born and bred blogger, you are.

    And the earphones?

    Priceless.
