Coffee Cupcakes or I am your president…you spoiled snowflake

It is December 23 in my life. The most joyful day of the year!

Or it would be if some of the 5 star cookies did not decide to act like a special snowflake and yell

at me:” No cupcakes, we are 5 star cookies! No cupcakes! NO, NO, NO!”

I started to speak: “Well, we are open minded people and the blog. And we want to be open to all other sweet possibilities.”

My 5 star cookies started to yell: “No cupcakes. Just NO! ”

You are not my president-they continue to yell at me.

At that point my brain started to boil. Yes, my brain. The part that control my action says:-Go and get your powerful Abraham Lincoln suit and talk to them.

And so I did!

“Dear 5 star cookies,

I AM YOUR PRESIDENT! LIKE IT OR NOT. I AM YOUR PRESIDENT!

You will be with me. So be sure you get and repeat the message!

I am with her and I am your president! And we will make this blog great again….with cupcakes!

Even Fidel Castro would be proud of me if he was alive. Since he is not the Universe is my witness.

Now since I deliver the message,my cookies and I are baking the cupcakes. Together. In peace.

So, spread some love! Joy to the world! And listen to the music…it is the best medication for all of us …blue, red, black, yellow…

Blue Christmas

I’ll have a Blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmastree
Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start fallin’
That’s when those blue memories start callin’
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

And when those blue snowflakes start fallin’
That’s when those blue memories start callin’
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

So,

Dear my cookies and cupcakes,

I hope you learn your lesson. Life is about sharing. Don’t be afraid of each other.

And be open minded!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

And president Lincoln thank you for your powerful suit! It did help. Say hi to Castro…and I really want to visit Cuba!
