Recently, I made some Halloween cupcakes for a friend who's feeling under the weather. Of course, it was pretty late when I did this. It was midnight, in fact; which automatically turns it into a Halloween story!
This is the story of ...
The Gracie-Monster and the Midnight Cupcakes
Once upon a time, there was a well-behaved, timid and shy, sweet kitty. Her name was Gracie. She was always a good girl. One night, she walked into the kitchen, just as the clock struck midnight.
"People still awake and up." said Gracie. "How annoying. They need to go to sleep so me can prowl."
" Hmmm, no people around in the kitchen, though."
Gracie smelled something delicious.
" Hey...what's this?"
"Oooh! Mommy made cupcakes!"
"Oh cupcakes! I love you! Mmmmmmm!"
"Mmmmm! Me want cupcakes!"
"EEK!" said the cupcakes. "What is that?! A big furry monster!"
"Heh, heh! Me gonna GET those cupcakes!"
"Oh, hello, Mommy! Me not see you there!
I a good girl. Good job on the cupcakes!"
The cupcakes survived.
But not for long.
