The Tale of the Macaroni

The following is a tale. A true tale. A factual tale.

Once upon a time there was a little girl. She was such a cupcake of a girl. Yummy, inside and out! This little cupcake girl loved macaroni and cheese. Especially from Taco Mamacita. One day she decided to take her Aunt Reb to her favorite mac & cheese place. Oh, she was so happy! How she loved mac & cheese, how she loved Taco Mamacita and how she loved her Reb!

Because she loved her Reb immensely, she decided midway through dinner to journey two feet over and stand by her. But her Reb was in conversation with the other grown ups, so she decided to observe her surroundings. The little cupcake looks down and sees an unhappy sight...a tragedy on the floor. Seconds later her Reb takes notice, glances down, sees little hands reaching for escaped macaroni that has spilled on the floor. Before coherent words come out, little hands have grabbed a couple pieces and stuffed them into her cupcake mouth. As the little cupcake begins to munch, her Reb sees more pieces on the floor, as well as the obvious intent for cupcake girl to retrieve them all!

Her Reb calmly imparts these words of wisdom, “It’s okay, sweetie, you don’t have to eat them when they’ve been on the floor.”

No sooner than these words of wisdom were dispensed, the sweet, yummy cupcake girl ’PITS THEM OUT! No more floor-macaroni for her!

This tale was enjoyed by the following grownups: GrandBob, Lulu, Reb and a table of two, who witnessed the entire event with much delight and laughter!

I love my cupcake girl!
