Surprise

{photo credits}
How many of you guys love surprises? I love surprises, I love giving them and I love being surprised. There is one surprise which I just never really really appreciated. Let's rewind the hands of time, back when I wore pigtails and retainers. Rewind to high school, home economics class. Our teacher was super super strict. She always had her hair pulled up in a bun and her eyebrow always seemed to look like a mountain. Let's call this teacher Ms. Surprise.

Anyhow, Ms. Surprise was teaching us how to bake cupcakes. She kept saying that we needed to beat the batter in one direction and one direction only. All eyes always had to be on her, if not she would have a fit and call whoever wasn't paying attention to go to the front of the class and demonstrate everything. This time around she not only had everyone's eyes on her, she also had everyone's attention. Everyone gulped as we watched her mix and beat the batter. Our eyes widened and our jaws dropped.

Guess what happened?

A booger dropped into her batter! Did she see it? Nope, she was talking and demonstrating to the class and looking at everyone trying to make sure all eyes were on her. She proceeded with baking the cupcakes and everyone had to eat her share. For the first time, no one was looking forward to eating their cupcake. The classroom was awkwardly silent as we ate our cupcakes and tried our best to gulp it down.

To this day, I still wonder who ended up eating the cupcake with a surprise inside. Could it have been me? My best friend or my teacher? I guess we will never know.

Sorry that was a bit TMI, but well I had a cupcake earlier today and I remembered all about the "surprise filling" we had in one of the cupcakes.

Have a yummy day my dears.

Oh noooooo!!!! I probably would have vomited. Actually, I know I would have. Just for an excuse to not have a booger-contaminated cupcake hanging out in my stomach.

Ivana said...
