"Can you hear me now??"

So I am talking on my cell this morning, first with my sister,
and a little later with my brother.
Both told me that I sounded very muffled.
So I tried talking more into the mouth piece area,
louder,
more clearly.
Apparently I was still sounding crappy.

Then
I remembered something.

Last night, when I had picked Connor up from swimming,
all the kids had gotten cupcakes to celebrate something..??

whatever

We get into the car,
and I started my usual
"I HAVE YOU ALONE FOR THE NEXT 15 MINUTES,
AND I CAN LECTURE YOU ABOUT SOMETHING
YOU DID FOR THE WHOLE RIDE HOME"
Mother-Son alone time talk.

Last nights topic was
looking someone in the face
when they are speaking to you...
out of respect, of course.

Anyhoo.

Hannah calls from home to let me know she
needed help with a bit of her homework,
which totally interrupted my
bitch session
conversation with my son.

So I hang up with her, mildly irritated,
and slam my phone



into the top of the cupcake


that Connor so smartly put into

the CUPCAKE holder of my car.

oh wait.

That's actually

THE CUP HOLDER

CUP

C.U.P.

CUP HOLDER

not cupcake holder.

We now know why I sound muffled.

So THAT'S what those are for! Not gum wrappers, not receipts, not pens or pencils, not used napkins, not dirty socks, not kid's meal toys, and certainly not cupcakes, but CUPS!!! Imagine that.......
