Birthday Cupcakes

Posted by Pete | Posted in News | Posted on 29-06-2013


I heard this story yesterday, a very cute story and one I would like to share with you folks. A friend brought over a huge cup cake yesterday, the biggest I had ever seen. It had an angel food bottom and a strawberry top. The bottom was 4 or 5 inches thick and the strawberry topping was as tall as the cake and it extended an inch or so larger than the cake. And it was very good. Our friend, a retired teacher, said one of her former students brought it over for her birthday and she wanted to share it with us. She told this story while we were eating the cup cake:

While she was in first and second grade, her teachers always brought the birthday child a cup cake. Since her birthday was over in June she never got one. So in third grade toward the first part of the year the tradition continued for those student having a birthday. She really wanted one of those cupcakes since she had never had one and after another student had one she told the teacher that tomorrow was her birthday. The teacher said no, your birthday is in June. She told her, no that is a mistake, my birthday is tomorrow. The teacher brought her the cupcake and she really enjoyed it and the attention, so much so that a couple of weeks later she told the teacher she was going to have a birthday tomorrow. The teacher said, no, I don’t think so and called her dad about it. Well, she got a spanking for lying, spoiling the joy of the second cupcake. I don’t think she ever got another birthday cupcake while in school. Anyway, I though that was a very good story, one worth sharing with all of you. ……Pete
