Let them eat cupcake?

Some days I just see things that make no sense whatsoever. I’m sure that you have caught on that cupcakes are kind of a big deal currently, right? I mean cupcake wars on TV, cupcake stores in every yuppie neighborhood and even fancy cupcakes at Walmart and Meijer now. Well today I saw the most ridiculous cupcake sight to date and that comes from someone who has tasted cupcake frosting flavored vodka! A group of ten people at lunch brought in their own birthday “cake”, which consisted on about 20 cupcakes pushed together on a plate and frosted en masse with white frosting and the words “Happy Birthday Somebody” written across the whole surface. Here’s an idea….Why not just bake a FUCKING CAKE?!?! If a cupcake is intended to be a small individual version of a cake why in the hell would you push a bunch of them together? Ugh! Whats next? Jumbo sized “mini Cooper” SUVs?

Randomness  before bed after an 18 hour day. Good night Chicago!


About Jim Herbert

I've been wanting to write my whole life. By age 45 it had amounted to nothing more than a storage locker of half full journals and a lot of unfulfilled dreams. Then Paris in the fall of 2011 happened. It was the catalyst I needed to consistently blog. At first I had a hard time hitting the publish button, but now two blog sites and over 300 posts later I'm hitting my stride. I'm also a budding speech writer. I've recently been heavily involved in the Chicago Storytelling scene and have also won the Chicago Toastmasters Area 66 International Speech Contest. Check out our website at www.emergingintojoy.com for more details about the amazing things that are happening in my life. A book or two are nearing completion. With another Paris trip on tap for Easter of 2015 I can only imagine that there are Infinite Possibilities on the horizon!!!
