dear to me

there are some things you can't remember doing. like taking your first steps. saying your first word. i only remember one thing from my younger days: calling my grandma on the phone and telling her i received three things in the mail that day. my! she said. you're rich! three things? wow. i was three years old then. i am nearly fifteen now.

for as long as my memory allows, i've loved cupcakes. many of my friends and loved ones have noticed the glow in my eyes as i'd see one. oh, hello there. you're looking good today. and it'd be gone in a split second. it wasn't just the taste that attracted me to them. warm, moist, nearly melts in your mouth. the texture of the frosting. the slight crunch of the sprinkles. or the sight. delicate. enchanting. there was something else.
i can remember alot of things. a conversation that took place between me and a friend. time of day, place. subject. it'll come back to me as though it just happened. i don't eat cupcakes as much as everyone thinks. if i did i'd be the size of a hippopotamus. but when i do, i always remember being happy. i don't recall eating them when i was grouchy or upset. i always had a smile on my face. always.

everyone has something they're fond of. if they are upset, tea can calm them down. if they are depressed, doctor who is always a laugh-machine. for me, when i am in any other mood than i am supposed to be in, sometimes, someone hands me a cupcake. here you go. it's like they're handing me a smile on a plate and saying be happy. and my face immediately lights up.
so, in honor of these pretties, be happy.
