For Saturday Centus, Jenny has given a very difficult prompt ~ at least, it was difficult for me. I’m sure the other participants breezed through this with great stories and verse.
CREAM SOMETHING, OR SOMEONE!
(100 words, plus “cream together butter and sugar”)
On his birthday, my husband remarked that he missed his mother’s chocolate cake.
I called his mother to request the recipe.
“I’ll give it to you, but you won’t be able to make it.”
That night, my husband choked down his cake, and thanked me for trying.
When his sister called, I told her about the cake disaster.
“Mother has never given that recipe to anybody without changing the ingredients.”
In the background, I heard their mother, “Ask if she remembered I said, ‘cream together butter and sugar’".
At that moment, butter and sugar weren’t what I wanted to cream! laurie
