. . . a crappy cupcake. That's what my friend Lisa says and she is sooooooo right. Anyway, I had a terrible cupcake this morning at the Barnes and Noble down at the Gateway. It was red velvet with cream cheese frosting and a chocolate mousse center. DUDE! HOW CAN YOU SCREW THAT UP?
Here's how. Let it sit in your glass case for too long so that it dries out and tastes like cardboard with a dollop of nasty pudding. What a disappointment.
But! Speaking of Lisa! (Which we were!) She does this thing where she writes a poem a day for a month. The poem doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be done. And after the month is over, Lisa has this treasure trove of raw material. Genius! Anyway, I want to do a picture book verion of this project (something several Utah children's authors have done). I'll write a picture book a day--and we'll see where that takes me.
Hopefully NOT back to the cupcake at Barnes and Noble.
