I often go days without encountering any subjects worth blogging, wondering…Will I ever blog again??…And then, when I least expect it, a topic essentially tackles me. Like it’s so good, I can’t not blog it. Today, I was hit hard by the T Bone Train (for those of you who don’t know-T Bone is one of my mom’s many nicknames).
Anyway, T Bone’s birthday is tomorrow, and I’ve been asking what kind of cake she would like me to make. She was riding the Red Velvet-Carrot Cake teeter totter until this morning, when this is the text I received:
“Callme soon. Know way cake.” (No typos here on my part, just wanted to accurately display the text)
Being unable to decipher the message imbedded in the text, I call my mom immediately.
The conversation proceeds to go something like this:
“Hey mom, what’s going on?”
“Hi honey, sorry my fat fingers can’t type. I’m watching Kelly and Michael and I know what cake I want you to make! They’re making it on the show right now and it looks SO good. His mom makes it for his birthday every year and I am sold. So get onto the website and print the recipe. I just couldn’t wait until later to tell you.”
Since T Bone couldn’t wait to tell me, I figured I shouldn’t wait to blog it either.
