That has to be my single most longest title in the history of The Cupcake Bandits. Unless you have been keeping up with Charlie Sheen and his interviews you might think I have totally gone 10 cups of crazy. The truth is I'm not. I'm just blown away by how nuts Charlie Sheen has gone. The decay of a brilliant mind. He's a walking PSA for just say no to drugs. My husband and I watched the different interviews. We were both so sad.
|Come back to earth Charlie! We miss you!|
I was taking pictures of the Jambalaya when mid shoot I had to go check on the bandits. It was really quiet. Too quiet. Fortunately they were just laying down watching Dora the Explorer. I came back to find Buster eating the Jambalaya. He knew he was in trouble so ran over to the spot by the washing machine. I put the Jambalaya on the kitchen counter. Since he had eaten out of it I was going to give it to him anyway but I wanted a period of time to go so he knew what he did was wrong. The problem is I forgot about it. When Alan came home he got his dinner and noticed the Jambalaya sitting on the counter. He thought that since someone didn't finish their he would eat it. After we were done with watching American Idol we had a conversation that went something like this:
Husband: So how was your day?
Me: Oh pretty good. I finally took pictures of the Jambalaya.
Husband: Did they turn out okay?
Me: Yeah. Although in the middle of taking pictures I went to go check on the girls but when I came back Buster was eating the Jambalaya. I was surprised because he normally doesn't do that.
At this point my husband's face is the color of a sheet of paper. He's staring at me like he's seen a ghost.
Husband: Was that the Jambalaya on the counter?
Me: You ate that?
Me: *starts laughing and laughing*
Husband: It's not funny. It's gross.
Me: *continues laughing*
Husband: Please tell me you aren't going to include that in your blog.
Me: Oh yes I am!
