Ever wonder how a Cake Wrecks post gets written? Well, sometimes, it's like this:
Me: "I need a post idea. Any funny holidays coming up?"
John: [googling] "Hmm. Oh. Here we go: it's National Self-Help Group Awareness Month."
Me: "Isn't a 'self-help' group an oxymoron?"
John: [Already back to playing Tiny Wings on his phone] "Mmmmmhmmmm."
Me: "And what cakes would I use, anyway?"
::five minutes later::
Me: "Found one! Look:"
"See, the cupcakes on the right are all, 'Help me!!' and the left ones are like, 'DO EET YERSELF.' Eh?"
John: [glancing over] "You can't use those. They look like KKK cupcakes."
Me: "Ha! Yeah, but...they're chocolate. C'mon. That's kind of awesome."
Me: "Fine. What else have you got?"
John: "Er..." [scrolling] "...next week is Meat Week."
Both together: "Naaah."
John: "Glaucoma Awareness Month?"
Me: "Oooh! I have the perfect cake for that!"
"No, wait, wait. HERE we go:"
Me: Bwahahaha!! Right? RIGHT?!"
Me: "Or is that cataracts?"
John: "I don't understand. Do you ENJOY hate mail?"
Me: "Ok, Ok, never mind."
John: "Next you'll want to use Stocking Awareness Month. "
Me: "That's this month? Weird. You'd think it'd be last month."
Me: [busy clicking]
John: "You're not actually writing about Stocking Awareness Month, are you?"
Me: [still clicking] "Mmmhmm...."
Me: "Hang on. Busy here."
Me: "K, how 'bout this one?"
"Were you AWARE that this is, in fact, a stocking?"
Me: "What? Not good enough?"
John: "It's 'stocking' with an 'AL.' You know, stalking?"
Me: [eyes wide] "Ooooooooooh."
Me: "Well, I guess that makes more sense."
Me: "But I think I have a cake for..."
John: "I'm going to stop you there. It's also National Handwriting Analysis Week. GO WITH THAT."
Me: "Ok, ok. FINE."
So without further ado, my dear Wreckies, here is today's post:
It's National Handwriting Analysis Week. I can tell you that the baker of today's cake was a focused individual with a flair for the dramatic, as well as someone who channels his or her emotions through humor. He or she may also have a less than helpful spouse who is MORE than welcome to write a post again himself sometime. JUST SAYIN'.
Thanks to Katrina V., Traci C., Selena E., Amanda R., & Brea S. for making today a day worth celebrating. And also thanks to John, my sweet hubby, for still laughing at all my jokes even while telling me I absolutely can NOT write that.
