7 Weeks Old (and Wasting Money)
This day ate me alive. FOR serious. I needed to figure out a way to pretend it never happened. First thought? A CUPCAKE (okay it was really an adult beverage, but I’m still in detox mode from April’s 18-day bender)! I decided to treat myself to a cupcake (from Cupcake, of course) immediately following work around 3:45pm. Let’s just say it was an air high-five to myself for already being awake for 12 hours. Yes, math masterminds, that would mean that I’ve been up since around 4am. I’d like to personally thank the nasty thunderstorm that proved my eyelids too thin (I hate lightning!) and my grouchy alarm for bullying me to get work done before heading to work. Ug-ly. Anyway, I chose French Toast – a flavor I had never tried before. It was a tough decision because Salted Caramel Chocolate sounded amazing, too. What’s a girl to do? So many cupcakes, so little time! Although seemingly smaller than the cupcakes purchased for The Royal Wedding a few weeks ago, the French Toast cupcake was absolutely delicious. Another notch in my stretchy (for obvious reasons) cupcake belt.
Fast forward almost 2 hours when I rolled myself off of the couch to get in some computer time. You can only imagine the DEVASTATION I felt when I saw this post on Cupcake’s Facebook wall →
Posted at 2:35pm. Another flavor I haven’t tried. A different notch that I could’ve carved out in my non-existent belt (I’m just not a belt kinda girl). For free. Hmph.
Yes that’s right, I paid for a cupcake when I could’ve had a FREE one. I hate wasting money and I love free things. Join the club, right? What. The. Beep. I hate knowing that people before me and after me held this sweet secret hostage. If they only had been aware of my day, they would’ve been buying ME a cupcake. Oh, and true story, I would’ve shared this yummy secret up and down that sidewalk if I had known about it. Wahhhhh (you are safe to assume that I am actually crying)! I guess this is the sort of thing that happens when you have a dumbphone (as opposed to a smart one) that doesn’t have internet that would allow you to compulsively check Facebook on the regular.
Operation ‘Erase Day’ = FAIL
Oh well, tomorrow’s a new day. A new day that happens to be closer to the weekend. And today – well, today’s Spikey 7 week birthday.
Wowzers. They do grow up quickly, don’t they?! DON’T ARGUE WITH ME.
p.s. Thank you Doug from From the Land of Palm Trees for mentioning my blog on your blog. I love when bloggers support one another! =) Blog. (I just wanted to say it one more time!)
p.s.s. Sorry for the foul mood. I’m putting myself to bed ASAP. I promise to make it up to y’all soon! =)
p.s.s.s. My husband says hi to “Don” and “Doff” – er, inside joke!
