Have you ever met someone who “hears what they want to hear”? Yes, you have: Me.
A few years ago I asked a group of friends what they would do for a living, if they weren't whatever they are now. One friend, a doctor, said, "Psychopath."
I asked him what he was majoring in.
“Pastry,” he said.
Ding-ding-ding—best news of the day, right? I told him he could come over and do his homework in our kitchen every single day.
“That’s so cool that you’re studying pastry,” I said.
“No, no—history,” he explained.
Oh. My happy expression melted onto the floor, and here’s where the needle scratches the record, for those of you who know that sound.
All the wind left my sails. History? I mean, I have nothing against that field of study, but compared to pastry? (sigh)
These kids today.
Hey, are you having a heat wave where you live? Staying inside? That’s a perfect time to watch my Youtube Mom videos. Enjoy a pastry while you watch!
