So, why did I say yikes? Here’s the deal… I had an appointment to go to first thing Friday morning. I woke-up absolutely elated that this was the start of my “break;” (husband home 4 days, and parents visiting for a week!) I grabbed my cup of coffee and paper work and left my substitute teacher with his plans for school that morning; I had the day off! (Funny how a doctor appointment can feel like a mini-vacation, but sometimes you just need a break! :))
I drove to my appointment, and was super excited to discover that it was located right next to one of my favorite cupcake places. I hadn’t been there in a couple of years because it’s not that close or convenient, but I knew I had to stop after my appointment for a treat!
I walked-in, and smiled from ear-to-ear. I was like a kid in a candy shop, only I was a mom in a cupcake shop! They had so many fun Halloween cupcakes, and I am a huge fan of all things fall. I couldn’t decide what to get, so the nice gentleman behind the counter suggested I get a variety of minis to take home. Perfect. I began pointing and asking and changing my mind until finally, I had the perfect selection. Alas, he rings me up. Here’s where the “yikes,” comes in. Silly me had not been calculating the price, nor realizing that these special “Halloween” varieties were $0.50 more a piece. He gave me my total. My jaw dropped. I couldn’t help it — I just blurted out, “For tiny cupcakes?” ($19, folks!) These are literally about 3 bites big. “Oh, but these are SO good,” he responded. What could I do? I handed him my credit card.
I came home and showed my girls. They were busy playing Farkle Frenzy with their substitute teacher. But, when they were finished they were quite excited about these little bites of gold! They were fun; and yummy; and we enjoyed them; but, I will never, ever again pay almost $20 for a few bites of cupcakes!
