Important: The following post links to two companies. These are not paid advertisements. We promise. We just love these companies and this conversation actually happened.
So, yesterday I found myself, yet again, in the airport about to go to Salt Lake. The following conversation ensued as we waited to board the plane:
Lolly: I’m so excited!!! (claps hands)
Me: The thing that’s funny about that is that most people would think you’re excited about your trip. But really, you’re just excited about cake.
Lolly: Schmidt’s Bakery Cottage makes heaven in the form of buttercream frosting. There is nothing else like it. Anywhere. Especially Seattle.
Me: Yes. I get it. And that’s why you have two large empty Tupperwares taking up space in our suitcase.
Lolly: Um, are you serious? Do you seriously not know how this works?
Me: What do you mean…?
Lolly: Hon, those Tupperwares are not for the cake. They are for my Dunford Donuts. The empty bag in our suitcase is for my carry-on of cake. s. Cakes. Plural. The donuts will be safely individually wrapped in baggies inside the Tupperwares. Obviously.
Me: Wait, we’re getting donuts as well?
Lolly: We aren’t getting donuts. I’m getting donuts. And cakes. For me. I’m not sure what you might be getting.
Me: I’m getting worried about space in our luggage for the return trip…
Lolly: It’s understandable, I suppose. But don’t worry. I’ll make it work. (Leans over and gives me a kiss)(Looks at me with concern) Did my breath smell bad? Was it the onions in my sandwich?
Me: No, you’re fine.
Lolly: It’s just that you looked a little repulsed…
Me (whispering): You do realize we are currently in line to board a plane to Salt Lake City, Utah, where we will be speaking about our true love and intimate relationship even though I’m gay. Maybe “repulsed” is a poor word choice?
Lolly: Perhaps. But you did look repulsed.
Me: I’m not repulsed! I’m distracted. By all the Tupperware and bags. (Leans over and gives Lolly a kiss).
Lolly: That’s more like it. That may have just earned you a Dunford Donut.
Me (whispering affectionately into Lolly’s ear): I plan to steal several…
Lolly: Dunford Donut rescinded! Help! Robbery!
Me: You don’t even have the donuts yet.
Lolly: And apparently you never will.
So here’s the flyer for the thingamabob tomorrow. Please come! There’s going to be seating for a LOT of people, and also, I’d love to meet you. Seriously, you. I want to meet you.
