I thought it would be nice to frost a cupcake that Mandy had baked. Why this sudden urge to put frosting on a cupcake? Because it was Saturday and I was going to eat it, and it's a well known fact that cupcakes taste better with frosting.
Mandy happened to wander through the kitchen in the brief moment after I had frosted the cupcake but before it made it to my mouth. The stunned look on her face stopped me in my tracks, mouth open, cupcake suspended in midair, ready to bite. It also got the attention of the kids.
"What happened to that cupcake, Dad?"
"Yeah, did you drop it?"
"No, I just frosted it. I'm going to eat it."
My kids, and Mandy, cackled with the mirth that only an icing snob can muster.
