IF YOU GIVE A MOM A MUFFIN
If you give a mom a muffin, she’ll want a cup of coffee or
in my case a diet coke to go with it. She’ll pour herself some, or
take a drink. Her three year-old will spill the coffee or diet coke.
She’ll wipe it up. Wiping the floor, she will find dirty socks.
She’ll remember she has to do laundry. When she puts the laundry in
the washer, she’ll trip over the boots and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan supper. She
will get out a pound of hamburger. She will look for her cookbook.
(101 Things to make with a pound of hamburger.) The cookbook is
sitting under a pile of mail. She will see the phone bill, which is
due tomorrow. She will look for her checkbook. The checkbook is in
her purse that is being dumped out by her two-year old. She’ll smell
something funny. She’ll change the two-year old. While she is
changing the two year old the phone will ring. Her five year old
will answer and hang up. She’ll remember that she wants to phone a
friend to come for coffee. Thinking of coffee or in my case diet coke
will remind her that was going to have a cup. She will pour herself
some. And chances are, if she has a cup of coffee, her kids will have
eaten the muffin that went with it.
