White chocolate

When I was in third grade (or so), there was a kid in our class who was from Germany and I’m pretty sure he was with us for only a year. I don’t remember his name, but I remember that his mom insisted that everyone in his class be invited to his bday party, which included moi.

But this morning, she truly knocked it out of the park.

Let me set the scene. I was grabbing a Coke from the fridge and she noticed that there was then only one remaining. She knows that I can become annoyed when this happens because the extra Cokes are in the basement and I just do not go down there. So, Molly dramatically called the sole Coke to my attention with, “Mommy, do you see that there’s only one Coke left?!?” And then Aaron let out a sigh, commenting that he would get to the restocking later and blah blah blah.
