Joanne’s friend Melanie had a delicious surprise waiting for us in our cruise ship stateroom: A package of Red Velvet Cupcakes. If you recall, I am quite fond of cruise ship red velvet cupcakes. Yes indeedie. It was really all I could do not to open them up immediately and shove one between my lips. But always the lady, I waited for Joanne to make the first move on them. That’s me, the Lady.
We enjoyed them on our balcony after a long day of sightseeing/touring somewhere. A nice cold cuppa milk, fresh showers and our pajamas, and the cupcakes were ours.
P.S. After typing this little Cupcake Recap, I remembered that wasn’t the way it went down at all. In fact, I opened the package Day 1 – almost immediately upon seeing them – and shoved one in my face, and even said something like, “I don’t care if you’re eating them or not, I’m having one NOW!!” and I did. There’s no “lady like” when Red Velvet Cupcakes are in the room.
Thanks, Melanie. I blame you for all my un-ladylike behaviors. All of them, even the ones that don’t involve cupcakes. Shew, it’s nice to have a fallguy.
