The Icing on the Cake
Last week my husband bought some cupcakes at Sprinkles for his office manager's birthday. Somehow this otherwise together married mom missed the fact that in the past five years, we in the U.S. have gone cupcake crazy. She didn't know what Sprinkles was, nor had she ever had a red velvet cupcake. First she asked him how he knew she loved red velvet. His response was, "Teresa, you're from Alabama...of course you love red velvet." Then she asked him how he knew she loved cupcakes, and he answered, "Who doesn't love cupcakes?" Exactly.
BTW, if you're a fan of The Cosby Show, you should recognize a small reference to a favorite moment involving Rudy and Cliff Huxtable right near the end of the book. It put a smile on my face, and if it clicks for you, I'm betting you'll get a tickle out of it as well.
